ANTH 170 Introduction to Cultural Anthropology

Cultural anthropology involves the study of socio-cultural norms, practices and change. What does it mean to be human? How are humans shaped by and adapt to diverse environments and encounters? This course demonstrates how insights gained from ethnography can help us engage theories about social practice, as well as reflect on our own cultures and contemporary issues. Students will learn how anthropological practice informs social policy, business and academia.
