BI 210 Biology And Human Culture: 3 semester hours
This course will explore the interaction between culture and biology from a variety of perspectives. The customs and belief systems of different societies are often determined by and/or affected by biological factors in addition to environmental constraints and historical interactions. We will study aspects of human culture and social structure in both non-Western and Western cultures from evolutionary and historical perspectives in order to better understand and appreciate different cultural practices and beliefs, how they evolved, and what implications they have for the contemporary world and future civilizations. This course will not count for major/minor biology credit. Prerequisites: One course selected from a core curriculum writing courses, sophomore standing. This course fulfills the Global Awareness Domain requirement. (Offered fall semester in odd years).
