Anthropology

Course No. SNS 378  Credits: 3.0
Faculty Diane Lichtenstein | Elizabeth Hoag

The course is an introduction to the nature of culture and a comparison of contemporary western and non-western cultures worldwide. Readings, films, slides and class discussion help review cultural similarities and differences in subsistence technology, language, social organization, politics, religion and art. An analysis that views culture as humankind's most important adaptive tool, a strategy for survival, also suggests anthropology's relevance for appreciating modern world social, economic and ecological problems. The course addresses contemporary issues of human choices and culture change.

The understanding of contracts, copyright, budgeting and marketing and presentation concepts as applied to commercial-based work and freelance opportunities will be explored.
