Becoming Human: Anthropology

Assoc. Prof. Greg Downey, Macquarie University

Gain an introductory understanding of evolution, including how we evolved from primates and became human.

Impressively, humans are the only creatures produced by evolution that are capable of understanding evolution. In Becoming Human: Anthropology, you can explore how evolution works and how variation arises. Find out why, of all the orders of life, primates produced us. How did apes start to look like us, walk on two feet and grow big brains that over the past 200,000 years have figured out where we came from? This course will give you some thought-provoking answers.
