SOC 2250 - Cultural Anthropology


3 cr. 3 hr. Day course offered in the Fall. Also offered evenings.

The course introduces students to varying cultures. Attention is given to hunting and gathering, pastoral, horticultural, agricultural and industrial societies. Cultural change imposed by industrialization and technological revolution in both developing and modern societies is also analyzed and discussed. The intent of the course is to give students knowledge about the development and variability of cultures, living styles, and values, so that they are prepared to tackle elusive questions of the capabilities, limit and future of human societies.
