ANTH 285 Cultural Contact (3)
(BA) This course meets the Bachelor of Arts degree requirements.
This course treats anthropology as a scientific discipline with ties to other social and natural sciences. Emphasis is placed on how the research process is relevant to information acquisition and the evaluation of controversies that have long interested both scholars and the public. Research design, analytical methods, and sampling issues are covered by having students read and discuss hotly debated issues about how contact with Europeans affected small-scale indigenous societies. Student comprehension of topics will be assessed by classroom participation, exams, and papers. This class fulfills an elective requirement for both the major and minor in anthropology, and the General Education GS and IL requirements.
