ANTH201 - Introduction to Anthropology
Anthropology is a discipline that studies every phase of human existence, from the genesis of humans and their physical and cultural evolution, to the study of modern human life ways and sociocultural orientations across the globe. This course is designed to broaden the student's worldview of people living in both past and present cultures. The student will be introduced to the four basic fields of anthropology: Biological Anthropology (physical, primates, and genetics), Archaeology (Ancient Civilizations), Sociocultural Anthropology (ethnography), and Linguistic Anthropology. A fifth subfield of Applied Anthropology that investigates the effect of globalization on living cultures may also be explored. ANTH 201 fulfills the SUNY General Education Social Sciences requirement. Prerequisites: Prior completion or concurrent enrollment in MATH 090 and RDNG 116 if required by placement testing; prior completion or concurrent enrollment in ENGL 101. 3 Cr. (3 Lec.)
