ANTH 140 - Introduction to the Fields of Anthropology
This course introduces students to the four central sub-disciplines of anthropology: physical anthropology, linguistic anthropology, cultural anthropology, and archaeology. Central themes are human evolution, the appearance of culture, social organization, culture change, and domestication. When possible, examples will be obtained from the western subarctic region. Yukon First Nation pre-contact cultures, historic adaptations, and contemporary lifeways will be explored. ANTH 140 is a core course in the certificate of Heritage and Culture.
