B200 is an introductory course in bioanthropology. It is required for
the undergraduate major in anthropology, and it is a prerequisite for
many advanced courses in bioanthropology. B200 carries NMNS credit
toward the COAS distribution requirements. You will NOT be able to
count this course toward the S & H requirement.   We recommend B301, a
three credit lab course that also carries NMNS credit, concurrent with
or following B200 for anyone who plans a career in anthropology.   In
B200 we will survey the field of bioanthropology, emphasizing the ways
in which ideas about human evolution are tested using evidence from
the fossil record, from living prosimians, monkeys and apes, and from
contemporary human groups. There will be an emphasis on understanding
the underlying principles and science of evolution. Grades are based
on objective exams, short essays, laboratories and other hands-on
