Cultural anthropology provides the conceptual and methodological tools necessary to understand the diversity of human lifeways on a global basis. The course introduces such powerful concepts as culture and socialization and explores the effects of these on people’s worldview. This allows students to enhance their understanding of the underlying reasons why some societies have beliefs, lifeways, and customs vastly different from their own and allows them to see themselves and their own culture in a new light. This course is a satisfier course for the Global Studies Degree Designation.
