ISS 220: Time, Space, and Change in Human Society introduces students to the story of how humanity came to be – the story of us. The course explores biological and cultural change in the human species over time. The class will begin by exploring the evolution, biology, and archaeology of our non-living ancestors. The class will then continue the exploration of our human story by examining the emergence of modern humans, the development of complex societies, and emergence of agriculture, and the development of ancient states.
Students can take this course online from anywhere in the world and make progress towards their degree. All that students need is a computer, a modern browser, and a broadband internet connection. None of the anthropology online classes have an on-campus component or require that students purchase expensive textbooks.
