ANTH 4440:Paleoanthropology: The Human Fossil Record

3 Credit Hours
Prerequisite: ANTH 1105 
This course reviews fossil, environmental, and archaeological evidence that informs our understanding of the morphological and behavioral evolution of hominin species. Paleoanthropological studies help us understand the range of evolutionary trajectories of all hominins, the environmental contexts that shaped these evolutionary patterns, and the methodology used to uncover the secrets of our evolutionary past. Along with an overview of the hominin fossil record, particular attention is given to reviewing significant research sites, research methodologies, and active debates within paleoanthropological research.
