    OVERVIEW

    Anthropology seeks to know the link between the concepts of health, environment and pay homage to the medico-biological requirements with numerous cultural stimuli that act before and during illness. Ample attention is given to the process of human evolution, the acquisition of upright posture, the encephalization and foot changes and spine following orthostatism.

    AIMS AND CONTENT

    LEARNING OUTCOMES

    The course has as main objectives:

    Becoming aware of the close relationship between the human being and his natural and social environment.

    AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

    Students must:
    
    -acquire adequate knowledge and skills of an effective understanding of the concepts in class.
    -be able to apply their knowledge and understanding and solving problems related to anthropology in all its extensions
    -know how to use both at the conceptual level and at the operational knowledge acquired through self-evaluation skills and abilities in different application contexts
    -develop appropriate learning skills to allow them to continue to independently investigate major issues of discipline, especially in the workplace in which they will operate.
