Anthro 2F03

This course is essentially a continuation of Anthro 1A03. It is one of the mandatory second year anthro courses.

I had it taught by Rethmann.

We read three books (each semester had/has had differnt ones), and watched a few movies, and did analyses of them. Out of the three books, I really enjoyed one and have used it for essays in other courses.

Our course was divided into:
- attendance
- midterm
- final exam (take home)
- other things i can't remember

I took this course in Fall 2009 and it was taught by Kee Yong. Personally, I think he is a great professor although he tends to go off-topic a lot.

We had a textbook with several different articles about cultural anthropology and we went through a little under half of them. The mark breakdown was a little bit different.

Tutorial attendance and participation - 25%
Mid-term exam - 35%
Final exam - 40%

The mid-term exam was a fill in the blanks exam and the final was three take home essays.

Interesting class with pretty good topics, the professor tends to go off on tangents but he is absolutely brilliant. I took this class in 2011 and there was a midterm essay and a final essay, no exam!

ANTHRO 2F03 Review
Dr. Cowall taught this course in the 2015-2016 year. This course is a requirement for all students majoring in Anthropology. Depending on the professor the topic of discussion will vary. This course had a very simple layout with a paper, midterm, and exam. Not a bird course. No tutorials. Lecture topics were sometimes quite dry. Dr. Cowall was efficient in teaching her materials and an extremely understanding professor.
