ANTH 121-3-3
Introduction to Cultural Anthropology

This course is an overview of cultural anthropology and its specializations. Examples, drawn from around the world, illustrate the diversity, similarities, and differences existing in gender, kinship and marriage, and social, economic, political, and religious systems. The methods, theories, and empirical findings discussed and examined will lead to a greater understanding of our own cultural background from a comparative perspective.
