This course is certified to fulfill both the GE Social Science and Global & Cultural Awareness requirements.
- An introduction to social and cultural anthropology. We will be discussing the central topics and themes of anthropological inquiry and what it means to “think like an anthropologist.”
- The central debates of the discipline. This will include the competing theoretical and methodological perspectives in the discipline.
- Applied anthropology. We will be discussing how anthropological knowledge and perspectives can contribute to a wide array of vocational and everyday life applications.
COURSE LEARNING OBJECTIVES
Students will learn how to:
- Use holistic anthropological insights in understanding complex world problems.
- Use anthropological methods, such as ethnography, to address practical problems.
- Develop critical reasoning skills through reading, writing, and group discussions.
- Acquire an informed awareness of other cultural worlds- an appreciation of other ways of being human-of believing, behaving, and belonging, including their kinship organization and ritual, economic, and political practices.
- Learn to see personal beliefs, values, attitudes, and conduct-including kinship organization and ritual, economic and political practices from the perspective of people with different ideas about the way the world works.
- Grasp the social scientific principles and reasoning involved in ethnography, and recognize the value, limitations, and ethical implications of this way of making sense of social conduct.

Please review the BYU Foundations Documents and reflect on how these objectives are in line with the principles taught in those documents.
Please read the newsletter guide, “How to Build a Class Schedule,” which states: “BYU expects students to spend at least 2 hours doing work outside of class for every hour in class.” This is a three-credit course, so you should be spending at least 6 hours on coursework outside of the lecture, per week.
In your Inquizitive assignments, you’ll be able to answer questions until you receive 100% of the credit for the exam. You should be able to get 100% relatively quickly, but if you get questions wrong or give your correct answers a low confidence level, then you’ll have to answer far more questions until you get 100%.
The most important thing to remember about your Perusall assignments is that you are not only graded on the number of comments or annotations you make in the assignment, but you are also graded on how thoroughly you read the assignment. If you skimmed the assignment you may be penalized much as 60% of the grade.
30% of your grade is completing the assignment (including reading or watching/listening to the whole thing).
30% of your grade is based on how long you spent on the assignment (you’re only penalized for not reading long enough).
40% of your grade is based on completing your annotations and their quality (there is a scale of 1-5 on quality of annotations).
You may be penalized as much as 20% of your grade if your annotations are not evenly spaced throughout the reading or video.
The final due dates for every assignment are at the end of the month that the in question assignment appears. For example, the final due date for an assignment that appears on Feb. 1st or on Feb. 26th is the same. I will no longer accept those assignments after Feb. 28th at 11:59 pm. There are no exceptions. Please consider completing your assignments on time, as you’re more likely to get your grades promptly and will be able to keep up on the accumulating work over the month. Please do not procrastinate in completing your weekly assignments.
The grades for each month will be posted at the end of the first week of each month. If you complete your work early, your grades may appear early.
The instructions for each assignment and the rubric for its grade will be clearly posted with each assignment. For many of these assignments there is a base requirement to comment on the text you’ve read, but your reading time and quality of engagement, not just quantitative comments, are also graded. Please consider that when completing your assignments. You cannot skim the readings and still get a good grade on that assignment.
Please consider reading the BYU newsletter guide, “How to Build a Class Schedule.” This is a three-credit course, so you should be spending between 6 and 9 hours on coursework outside of the lecture, per week. Some weeks it will be on the high end of those 9 hours, and on others, it will be on the low end of those 6 hours.
Lastly, if there is an error in the recording of your grade, your TA should be notified and they can remedy the situation. If they do not respond, please contact the head TA (Sonja Smith) and me. Neither your TA nor I will reconsider your grade based on your expectations of what you deserve. If you press your TA or me for a better grade without specifically pointing to an error in the recording of your grade, then you will be reported to the Honor Code Office. Please remember that under the Honor Code “disruptive student conduct” includes “Repeated unwanted contact, including stalking, harassing telephone calls or email. (Also includes threatening or harassing behavior directed toward a faculty member in response to grades issued or performance valuated).”[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title=”Schedule” tab_id=”1527623779727-9cf68d03-b218″][vc_column_text]
