Introduction to Cultural Anthropology (SSC195P)
(09/01/2017-12/31/2017)

Course Memo

Cultural anthropology theory seeks to understand culture from the 'insider' point of view. This course enables the student to understand the essentials of cultural anthropology and apply these principles in the study of another culture or sub-culture. The course uses the principles of cultural anthropology and broader cultural theory to explore the challenge of building understanding and appreciation of cultures different from our own. As well as learning about the basics of culture and anthropology, students receive an orientation to the hands-on nature of field work through completing a brief ethnographic study of another culture or sub-culture.
