ANTH 3330 Cultural Anthropology

Using both humanistic and scientific approaches, cultural anthropology offers a holistic, comparative perspective on human condition. The nature, principles and comparative topics of culture - such as subsistence, family, language, religion and art - will be studied. Visual examples will be drawn from many cultures, offering students an opportunity to appreciate both the complex cultural diversity and the common traits of the world. Applications of anthropological knowledge to contemporary problems will be discussed as well.
