ANT 3100 - Human Evolution



Credits: 3

Prerequisite(s): ANT 1010 or permission of instructor

Description: This course is an overview of the evolutionary history of our species, Homo sapiens, and our extinct ancestors, the hominins. Taking a largely chronological approach, students learn the anatomical features of each hominin species through lectures, readings, and hands-on analysis of hominin fossil casts. Students also learn aspects of hominin ecology and behavior, as inferred from their morphology and associated archaeological and faunal remains. Additional topics include an introduction to evolutionary theory, taxonomy and systematics, primate evolution, and human skeletal biology.
