ANTHP 10500 - The Human Species


Hunter Core
Life and Physical Sciences (LPS)
GER
2/E

In this course we examine human biology and behavior from an evolutionary perspective, comparing our anatomy, physiology, and behavior to those of living primates and other mammals. We will discuss the relative roles of genes (“nature”) and environment (“nurture”), the biological basis of behavior, local biological adaptations evident in modern human populations, growth and development, and diet and disease. Students will actively engage in the development of scientific hypotheses, data collection, and data synthesis analysis, as part of laboratory research experiences throughout the semester. Material covered will help prepare students to understand and evaluate recent advances in genetics, behavioral studies, medicine, and evolution
