Why isn’t everyone the same? Why do people worldwide have differences in skin and hair colour and ways of greeting one another? Why doesn’t everyone speak the same language? Questions like these have fascinated humanity for as long as we have written records. Anthropology helps us to answer these questions through the study of humanity starting with the origin and evolution of humans. Anthropology strives to understand what defines us as humans and to explain how we got to be the way we are. Specifically, in this course we study Paleolithic-like societies, Mesolithic-like societies and Traditional-state and Empire societies, as well as cultural interrelationships and culture change. Open to grades 11 and 12 (no diploma exam for this course).

Philosophies of Humans 30 (3 credits)

This course addresses questions such as: What is a person? What is a meaningful life? What are good and evil? What is a just society? What is human knowledge? Students will learn critical thinking skills in evaluating philosophical arguments related to these questions, as well as skills used in researching and investigating various topics in philosophy. Students will study the great philosophers to provide answers to fundamental questions and think about the basic foundations of their own knowledge and beliefs. Open to grades 11 and 12 (no diploma exam for this course).

Applied Sociology 30 (3 credits) (no diploma exam)
