ANTH 200 - Introduction to Anthropology - A Four Field Approach


3 Credits; 3 Class Hours
This course concentrates on the study of anthropology as defined by its four sub-fields. These fields include physical/biological anthropology, archaeology, cultural anthropology and linguistics. It emphasizes the study of people - both past and present as well as the study of the physical world prior to and after the emergence of anatomically modern humans (AMHs). At its most basic level, anthropology is about understanding human beings and the developing unbiased human understanding of the world in which we live. This means that anthropology involves the study of people - both past and present - as well as the physical world prior to and since the emergence of hominids (including modern humans). Anthropology encompasses many sub-fields which in turn use methodologies from the physical sciences and social sciences to gain an understanding of both pre-historic times and present day life-ways.
