ANTH 308 - Anthropology of Education

(3 credits)
Prerequisite: ANTH 100 or consent of instructor
This course introduces students to anthropological approaches to analyzing and understanding learning, schools and education systems cross-culturally. Students investigate schools as agents of child socialization and enculturation; compare U.S. schools, education systems, and school cultures to learning, schools and education in other societies; and examine how educational institutions relate to other aspects of culture. Cross-cultural data include indigenous and contemporary Native North America, Africa, Japan, Germany and other settings globally. Offered alternate years. (Formerly ANTH 415) (CGCL; CMCL; CSOC; CWRT)
