“Human Osteology,” an anthropology course taught by Professor Eric Sargis, has been featured in Yale News as one of Yale’s more popular summer courses. The Yale News article quotes Professor Sargis:
“It’s a very exploratory, hands-on course, which is why I think students find it so fun,” said Sargis, professor of anthropology. “I get everyone from pre-med students who want to learn bone biology or bony anatomy to archaeology students who will be going off on digs. … Every student gets a plastic skeleton to take home for the duration of the course. With the skeleton, they can study the fundamentals on their own time, and then they can spend their time in the lab really getting down to the nitty gritty.”
