ANTH 665 - Human Growth and Development (3 units)
Examines human growth, how growth and development is measured, the molecular basis, secular changes, genetic and environmental effects on growth, and application to forensic age estimation in subadults.
Units of Lecture: 3
Offered: Every Fall - Odd Years
Student Learning Outcomes
Upon completion of this course, students will be able to:
1. verbally and in writing, describe human growth and development from fertilization to maturity following specific life stages.
2. analyze, orally and in writing, concepts of growth and development.
3. articulate world-wide patterns of growth through an understanding of genetic and environmental influences, orally and in writing.
4. develop an appreciation for the many ways of assessing human development and convey this verbally and in writing.
5. document and convey in verbal and in written form the molecular basis for development.
6. introduce a framework for applications in subadult forensic age estimation and convey this in written and verbal form.
7. collect anthropometric measurements and accurately document these data.
8. discuss in detail the processes associated with the molecular basis of growth and development.
9. document the evolution of the human life cycle and the evolution of human growth.
10. interpret worldwide trends of human growth and critically evaluate the proximate and ultimate causes.
