This course will give students the opportunity to learn and practice traditional osteological data collection techniques along with more recent advances in the field of biological anthropology. Students will receive training on how to plan a project, caliper-based and digital-based 2D measurement techniques, and 3D measurement techniques. The first half of the course will be a general introduction to different methods, and the second half will involve students applying what they learn to a specific research topic in a subfield of biological anthropology that is of interest to the student (e.g., forensic anthropology, primatology, or paleoanthropology).

Prerequisites: Permission of instructor.
