In Evolutionary Anthropology we focus on the pre-history, ecology and biology (including functional anatomy) of the human species. To accomplish this, our students take classes in Forensics, Human Evolution, Primate Anatomy, Sociobiology and Human Cognitive Evolution. After the basics, they explore more in-depth topics like Primate Evolutionary Genetics, The Human Body (using cadavers over in the Duke Medical School), Primate Sexuality, Human Osteology, Primate Disease Ecology and can even follow lemurs around the Duke Forest in Primate Field Biology. Students cap off their Duke experience with advanced level courses like Human Functional Anatomy, Primate Cognition, Orthopedic Biomechanics & Kinesiology and Ethics in Evolutionary Anthropology.
