Course Descriptions
ANT 1920
This independent study opportunity is
designed with anthropology majors in
mind, particularly those who have already
taken cultural anthropology. Students will
work closely with anthropology faculty to
design the focus of specific research topics
and will be expected to meet regularly with
the cultural anthropology class traveling to
Ecuador.

ANT 2410

Cultural Anthropology, is a General


Education course that seeks to understand
why people throughout the world today
and in the past differ in their customary
ways of thinking and behaving. Culture is
the primary means for human survival,
establishing how populations adapt to
specific physical and social environments.
Through the observation and analysis of
diverse cultural adaptations such as
subsistence patterns, reproductive
strategies, marriage customs, kinship
organization, political and economic
systems, religion, art, and music, students
develop an understanding of why and how
cultures change.
