SYLLABUS: Four-field Anthropology course (Lower-level Undergraduate course)

This syllabus is adapted from coursework I have taught and facilitated repeatedly as a teaching assistant and weekly discussion section leader in the first course in the Making of the Modern World core curriculum and writing program at UCSD (MMW11 and MMW1), which takes students on a multi-year tour of history from a multidisciplinary (and anthropologically inspired) perspective, starting from human evolution and prehistoric paleo- and neolithic eras to the present.
