See Addenda  for changes to this course, effective Spring 2018.

This course addresses fundamental principles of human evolution, beginning with a review of evolutionary theory, its history, processes and how genetics has changed the way evolution is viewed. The course will examine the fossil evidence for human evolution, physical characteristics, variation among specimens, and how the different specimens are related to each other. Adaptation will be a unifying theme throughout the course. Extensive use will be made of the physical anthropology laboratory. Offered alternate years. May be taken for graduate-level credit. (CSOC)
