Where do humans come from? What makes us different from other animals? How do we differ from one another? These are major questions dealt with in biological anthropology–the sub-discipline of anthropology concerned with evolutionary aspects of human biology and their dynamic relationship with culture. This course provides students with an introductory survey of how biological anthropologists try to answer these questions: by exploring the biological diversity of living humans, by comparing humans with non-human primates, and by examining the fossil record of human ancestors. Prerequisites: MATH 1050, MATH 1100, or MATH 1160.
