Anthropology is the study of humans, their society and culture. This course introduces students to sociocultural anthropology, its concepts and methods, stressing both the incredible diversity of human experience, as well as those things that we all share. Anthropology is wide in scope, encompassing topics such as language, religion, family, law, politics, economy, technology, science, expressive arts, sexuality, gender, environment, and more. The discipline is defined to a good degree by the way that anthropologists approach these topics: with holism, relativism, and comparison. This approach encourages the study of people different from us, but it also helps us understand ourselves, and why we see the world the way we do.
