Our behavioral and physical traits can be traced back to the evolution of humans. Understanding the human origins and evolution will help us understand the interrelations of these traits to both cultural and environmental aspects of our lives.
This Diploma in Human Origins and Evolution will give you materials to understand the morphological evolution and adaptation. You will also analyze the evidences for human evolution and how stone artifacts and fossil specimens are valid evidence to prove this evolution.
This course does not involve any written exams. Students need to answer 5 assignment questions to complete the course, the answers will be in the form of written work in pdf or word. Students can write the answers in their own time. Each answer need to be 200 words (1 Page). Once the answers are submitted, the tutor will check and assess the work.
