SOC 181I - Cultural Anthropology, 3 credit hours


From the exotic to the more familiar, anthropological study offers unique insights in this introduction to the nature of culture and a comparison of contemporary non-western cultures worldwide. Readings, slides and films help review cultural similarities and differences in subsistence technology, language, social organization, politics and religion. An analysis that views culture as humankind’s most important adaptive tool, a strategy for survival, also suggests cultural anthropology’s relevance for appreciating the modern world’s social, economic and ecological problems.
