Comment :
Very interesting course but need some science background for it. Teacher is good in terms of keeping interest of the class during lecture but I thought the exams were set up very poorly-- I don't believe doing a group exam (with 5 people I've never met) was unfair.

This is a great course, Dr. Finnis is a great prof and very enthusiastic with the course material. There are two videos that we watched in class which were both interesting and informative. There was a skull assessment which was easy to get a good mark in, you worked in group of 5-6. There was also a second test, which was super easy. I would recommend reading the textbook, it is an easy read. There are no essays for the class. However the exam had mc, short answer and long answer.

Comment :
I absolutely loved this class, extremely interesting and fairly simple if you're willing to put the time into it. Dr. Finnis is pretty funny and she makes the lectures extremely helpful. I had a 3 hour night lecture on thursdays and I loved going. Definitely recommend this for an elective, way more interesting than intro to anthropology!

great course, took it in second year as my elective. Very easy, the skull assignment is easy to get a very high mark in. Make sure you do the textbook readings. NO essay.

Awesome course. Really interesting, fun assignments, and it is VERY easy to get a good mark (if you do the two assignments). Also doesn't require writing an essay (AWESOME)
