    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. McGill is a fantastic teacher. He really cares about what he teaches and his students. I took him for Cultural Anthropology too. I took Physical Anthropology just to have him again. He gives around 3 exams for the whole semester and before each one, he supplies a study guide that is actually helpful. His teaching is interesting and easy to understand.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about human evolution and the origin of primates as well. We also went over a little cultural anthropology in the end. I learned that lemurs are Strepsirhines and the type of nose they have is called the rhinarium which cats and dogs also have and it enables them to have a more keen sense of smell. This was one of my favorite things I learned just because now I can point at my cat's nose and say "you have a rhinarium!"

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention, he is a great teacher but it's a challenging course especially if you are not familiar with anatomy. Be ready to learn some body parts and memorizing names of primate types and more than just homo sapian, neanderthal, and homo erectus.
