ANTH 1130 - Introduction to Biological Anthropology - 3 credits
Natural Science (03)
People/Environment (10)
Introduces the biological anthropology field, one of the four sub-fields within anthropology. Sometimes called physical anthropology, biological anthropology is the study of our collective human origins. Students will accomplish this through three main areas: study of biological evolution, including the forces of evolution and cellular biology; comparing primate and human physical and behavioral practices; and by examining hominid evolution from groups beginning four to five million years ago through today as they are shaped by environmental and cultural stimuli. Study will be done through a variety of in class discussions and lectures as well as simulated or dry lab activities. Additionally, students will learn how modern cultural implications impact our evolution and environment today.

ANTH 1104 - Human Origins - 3 credits
Hist/Soc/Behav Sci (05)
This course is an introduction to the archaeological evidence and theories developed by physical anthropologists to explain the origin and evolution of the human species. The course examines theories related to evolution, adaptation and variation. Primates, human predecessors, are examined in order to understand the first step in human evolution. Each stage of human development is then examined. Prehistoric evidence uncovered by archaeologists, the foundation of the course, is studied.

ANTH 1720 - Introduction to Physical Anthropology - 4 credits
Hist/Soc/Behav Sci (05)
People/Environment (10)
This course examines human biological evolution and variation from the perspective of morphological and cultural adaptation. Discussion addresses the basis of human biology, including genetics, physiology, population dynamics, and adaptive mechanisms. Primates and human ancestors are explored as a comparative model of contemporary human behavior and social organization. The frameworks and arguments of fossil and archaeological evidence are investigated. Modern human biological diversity and adaptations are analyzed, with attention to disease environments and misconceptions of "race." (Prerequisite(s): READ 0721 with a grade of "C" or better or appropriate assessment score) (MnTC: Goals 5 & 10) 4C/4/0/0
