[Note: ANTH 120 requires that students enroll for ANTH 120-L, "Biological Anthropology Laboratory" as a corequisite.]
goal of these courses is to introduce students to the foundational concepts,
methods, and relevance of biological anthropology. Ever wonder who we are
and how we got here, and what's with these strange opposable thumbs?
You already know something about genetics, but what about epigenetics?
How can we share over 99% of our DNA with a chimpanzee? Does the
Hobbit Man really exist? What anatomical and behavioral differences
do we have from Neanderthals?
explore all of these questions and more! The central
focus of this class is the scientific study of human origins. We
will cover the history, concepts, methods, and theory of biological
evolution and adaptation and apply these ideas to the genus Homo in a lecture and laboratory setting. There
is a specific focus on molecular, Mendelian and population genetics,
human variation, primate taxonomy and classification, and ethical
issues in biological anthropology. The philosophy of science and the
scientific method serve as the primary intellectual foundations of this course.
