Social Organization: Tribes to Global Systems
Academic Noncredit

This course covers principles of social organization, in societies ranging from small-scale to the modern global system and across a variety of culture areas. In the course, we are concerned with the classic anthropological topics of sex and gender, family systems, kinship and marriage, and with how these are entangled with other aspects of human sociality – with making a living, distributing necessities and luxuries, submitting to authority and resisting it, and communing with the sacred. Students will learn about the building blocks that human beings use to construct their social systems, and how different societies assemble these building blocks in different configurations.

This noncredit class meets with a regular University of Utah credit course.

Online book and material fees may be added up until the first week of class. Students may opt out during the first two weeks of class. For more information, visit the Campus Store Inclusive Access Program's webpage. If you opt out, you will be responsible for obtaining the course materials yourself for the course.
