In this course we will explore the scientific evidence for the evolution of the primates, primarily focused on humans, with an emphasis on biology and behavior. Principles of evolutionary theory will first be presented to provide a framework for the study of primate evolution. The fossil evidence for human evolution will then be considered using comparative data from non-human primate ecology. Required Course Texts : Campbell, Loy, and Cruz-Uribe, Humankind Emerging (9th edition). Other readings will be placed on Blackboard Course Requirements : This syllabus represents a contract. In it, I specify what topics will be covered, the required materials that will be graded, and a schedule. Schedule changes will only occur when absolutely necessary. Read the syllabus carefully, because your choice to enroll in the course means that you accept the terms of the contract. The course requirements in brief are: two examinations during the semester and one final comprehensive examination. Examinations will consist of a combination of multiple choice, true/false, matching, and short answer. Material on the examinations will come from lecture, reading, and discussion sessions. In addition, students will prepare two written critical movie analyses and two recitation projects.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
