ANTH 3030 - Topics in Sociocultural Anthropology


Goals: To study specialized topics in the subdiscipline of sociocultural anthropology. While intended primarily for anthropology majors or those interested in majoring in anthropology, these topics courses welcome interested students from other disciplines

Content: Focus varies. While the specific topic of the course varies from year to year, ANTH 3030 focuses on studying humans as social and cultural beings. The approaches that sociocultural anthropologists take to the study of human beings are many, varied and occasionally contentious.

The class will discuss anthropological approaches to research and the ethnographies that sociocultural anthropologists typically produce.
