ANTH 220 - Human Evolutionary Biology

4 credits
The course is a survey of areas of current interest to biological anthropologists. It continues and builds upon material covered in ANTH 103 . The focus is on human and primate biology with attention given to human evolution, osteology, geographic (“racial”) variation, physiological adaptability, evolutionary genetics, primate and human behavioral ecology, human development and life history theory, health and disease, and nutrition. Students explore these topics in both lecture and lab, in which hands-on work with fossils and other materials provides experiential learning opportunities for deepening one’s understanding of the biological and evolutionary underpinnings of human life, health, and behavior. Enrollment priority: Enrollment priority given to anthropology and biological anthropology minors. Prerequisite: ANTH 103 . Corequisite: ANTH 220L . Offered fall semester annually.
