Student Learning Objectives COURSE GOALS 1. Students will develop an understanding of anthropology as a discipline with a unique perspective that can illuminate contemporary academic and social issues. They will be exposed to the different points of view in these controversies. Accordingly, a first course goal is to allow you to assess the discipline(s) of anthropology (and psychology and sociology). 2. Students will make an assessment of the proverbial “real world” in order to develop an appreciation for where and how anthropology is being used, as well as how it could be used in a variety of settings and applications. The goal here is to develop students’ ability to use anthropology and other social sciences in their careers and as informed citizens. 3. Students will develop well-grounded yet personal syntheses of anthropology and its uses, as well as the ability to present these syntheses to other people. Thus, the course will facilitate and support the students' sense of professionalism
