The human skeleton is a remarkable, information-dense living structure that is central to addressing scientific questions surrounding human biology, evolution, health, demography, diet, and adaptation – in the past, present, and future. This course serves as an intensive and hands-on introduction to the anthropological study of the human skeleton. Students will develop competence in fundamental analytical skill sets in human osteology including: anatomy and identification of human bones and teeth, techniques for estimating age-at-death, sex, ancestry, and identification of pathological conditions. The background acquired in this course will be the foundation for professional development and research in a variety of disciplines such as archaeology, bioarcheology, forensic anthropology, paleoanthropology, anatomy, and biomedicine. Students must also enroll in ANTH 389 to take this class.
Enrollment limited to students with a class of Advanced to Candidacy, Graduate, Non-Degree or Senior Plus.
Enrollment is limited to Graduate, Non-Degree or Undergraduate level students.
Students in a Non-Degree Undergraduate degree may not enroll.
