ANT 310 - Research Methods

2009-2010 Catalog Year

This course introduces students to research methods used in anthropological research, both qualitative and quantitative. The scientific method will be discussed in detail and put in its historical and cultural context. Ethnographic methods will be detailed and discussed in the first portion of the course; how such methods are used to collect, analyze, and report on cross-cultural data will be explored. The use of quantitative methods in various contexts (e.g., human populations, forensic skeletal evidence) will comprise the second portion of the course.

PREREQ: nine hours of social or behavioral science, including ANT 100, SOC 100 or PSY 100.
