AN 101W - Honors: Introduction to Cultural Anthropology


Credits: 4
An opportunity for highly motivated students with strong verbal skills to learn the basic concepts and problems of sociocultural anthropology as well as the opportunity to develop and improve writing skills. The culture concept is explored as a central theoretical and empirical concern. Students learn about cultural diversity as well as recurrent patterns of cultural adaptation. The honors section of AN 101 provides a smaller class size, a discussion-based format, and explicit attention to social science writing. Students write and revise essays and respond to one another’s work in workshops and peer review sessions. Students take a general writing placement exam the first day of class to assist the instructor in assessing whether they have been placed at the proper expository writing level.
Note(s): The course fulfills part of the foundation requirement for anthropology majors and minors and is most appropriate for first-year students and sophomores. (Meets expository writing requirement for students who placed at EN 105 level or who have completed EN 103; fulfills social sciences requirement.)
