AN 102 - (UC) Bones, Genes, and Everything In Between: Introduction to Biological Anthropology
(3 cr.) In this course, students explore human origins and modern human diversity from an evolutionary perspective. Participants begin with the processes of evolution and natural selection, along with the mechanisms of genetic inheritance at the molecular level. Next they focus on our closest living relatives, the non-human primates, and then discuss the evidence for primate and human evolution found in the fossil record. The course concludes by exploring the origins of modern human diversity and the evolution of language. Every Year, All
