Class Experience

Biological anthropology and evolutionary biology were major components of my Master's degree in Bioarchaeology from Tulane University. In fact, my Human Evolution professor was part of the team that recently discovered one of the "newest" human ancestors in Africa, Homo naledi! I'm passionate about the subject and fascinated by the stunning (and often weird!) life forms that result from natural selection and adaptation.
Supplemental materials, such as links to scientific articles, documentaries and educational videos, or other reputable sources will be posted after each class!
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
40 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
