This course is an exploration of human biology from an evolutionary and biocultural perspective. Under this light, the class will provide you with general concepts for a better understanding of what it means to be human. We will see humas as mammals, as primates, and as hominids. We will explore the basics of human genetics, growth & development, nutrition, disease and life history. Biological variation in contemporary and past societies will be reviewed in reference to evolutionary processes.
