Spring Course Spotlight: Medical Anthropology

Anthropology 341 - Medical Anthropology

There is still space left in this popular course. Offered in the evening so you have all day to play in the sun!

This course will introduce students to the broad field of medical anthropology. The course provides an overview and introduction to the anthropological study of human health, wellness, illness, and disease. Particular case studies, drawn from the course text, will serve as examples for the diversity of methods and theories found within medical anthropology. We will follow the text and explore medical anthropology via three varied approaches: biocultural, social-cultural, and applied.
