Introduction to Anthropology
This course is from the “Man: A Course of Study” or MACOS curriculum which aimed at exploring the development of humans by comparing the life cycles and events of salmons, herring gulls, and baboons with humans. Students also explore the lives and cultural practices of the Netsilik Eskimo, native to Canada, and compare them with Western ideals and customs.
In this course students will examine the significant characteristics that make up the Pacific region, and work towards being able to identify and provide insight into the life cycles of specific animals, cultural practices of various Pacific Islanders, geographical and environmental factors of the Pacific, and the origins of Polynesia. This course was developed by CRDG.
