Evolutionary Anthropology

Evolutionary Anthropology Major (HBSc)

Program Overview

Anthropology is the study of humankind, dealing with the origin, development and nature of humans and their culture. The Major program in Evolutionary Anthropology provides a course structure for students desiring to expand upon or supplement other areas of academic interest by taking advantage of Anthropology’s unique global, chronological, and biological perspective on the human condition. In the Evolutionary Anthropology Stream (BSc), students understand how humans are related to non-hominid primates, changes in human behaviour and physiology, and what has influenced our transformation into Homo sapiens sapiens.
