|Course Scope |

This course is divided into 8 weeks and is organized to give students a road map in which to study anthropology. In this course, students will read about various cultural traditions, fossil remains, and material artifacts throughout the world. Instruction is primarily textbook driven with accompanied online lectures and online classroom weekly discussion.

Because this is a survey course of a broad subject, it will out of necessity, cover each topic with a broad brush. However, the reference area and online conference room will allow a deeper look into any subject area that particularly attracts the student. The student will learn how to use the World Wide Web to research topics related to the material discussed and covered in the textbook.
