The Science of Human Diversity

Carret icon

(3 cr.) This course surveys human phenotypic variation through an evolutionary and biocultural perspective. The role of genetics and environment (including culture) is discussed in relation to the heritability of human differences. Participants also consider how culture and society shape an understanding of human biology. Topics as diverse as environmental adaptations, race, sex differences, aging, growth, nutrition, demography and genetic disorders are addressed from this biocultural perspective. As Needed
