This free and open online course in Cultural Anthropology was produced by the WA State Board for Community & Technical Colleges [http://sbctc.edu/].
Students examine the anthropological perspective of human culture, including such institutions as kinship, politics, and religion, and evaluate the interrelationship between culture, environment and biology. Students explore the effects of globalization on culture while developing critical thinking skills through the application of essential anthropological approaches, theories, and methods. This course is divided into 3 units:
Culture & Cultural Anthropology: In the first unit, the anthropological concept of culture is explored, including overarching themes such as cultural relativism, holism, ethnocentrism, identity, and language. Cultural anthropology theories and methodologies are also introduced.
Social Institutions: In the second unit, students examine from a relativistic standpoint, the various manifestations of social institutions such as economic systems, including subsistence strategies, political organization, marriage, family, kinship, healthcare, and religion.
Globalization: In the third unit, students will research, critique and assess the impact of globalization on culture, particularly the effects on indigenous (non-Westernized, non-industrial, disenfranchised) peoples.
