Program Description


Anthropology is the study of humankind - its origins, evolution, and diverse cultures. ANTH 131 serves as the basic introduction to the world of anthropology. Although it is recommended that students take this course before those at a higher level, it is not required. Many students, especially science majors, prefer to take ANTH 152 directly, thereby fulfilling an important foreign culture requirement at many four-year institutions.
