Anthropology is a new subject
to many college students. Much of the material covered in the
various anthropology courses at Skyline College is useful both
in and out of class—concepts of race, ethnic diversity,
conflict resolution, and gender roles are some of the themes
covered that students find helpful in their personal and professional
lives. While there are topics that overlap into other fields
such as history, biology, geography, psychology, religion, et
cetera, anthropology addresses these in a unique way.

Attendance will be taken once each class session. Lectures,
class discussions, and films are as much a part of the course
as are the assigned readings and this material will be included
in exam questions. Regular, punctual attendance is of vital
importance since there is no way of making up audiovisual materials,
class discussions or lectures. Contact me if you miss a class
due to illness, etcetera. Students who continue to miss classes
may be dropped from the course. Also, out of courtesy to your
fellow students and instructor, pagers and cell phones should
be kept inaudible.
Making Up Missed Exams:
Students are expected to take all exams on scheduled dates.
Make-up exams are only given in the case of a valid and documented
emergency and must be made up the following week of their return
during my office hour. Do not schedule routine appointments
during exam times. Students who wait longer than one week will
not be permitted to take the test and will receive a zero on
that assignment. Extra credit is not accepted from students
who have missed an exam or any assignment.
Cheating and Plagiarism:
Skyline College does not tolerate plagiarism or any form of
cheating. All students should read the Student Handbook so that
each of you is aware of your rights and responsibilities while
attending Skyline College.
