Code: CLTR1001/AR10A Title: Introduction to the Study of Culture
Prerequisite: None - Credit: 3 - Semesters: 1& 2
Lecturer:  Dr. Sonjah Stanley Niaah

Culture is thought to be one of the most complicated words in the English language. Disciplines such as Anthropology, Sociology and Cultural Studies, have all sought to understand the complexity of culture from different perspectives. The course will examine the connections between these disciplines by exploring definitions and the varied approaches to the study of culture that they present. The course is divided into two parts - the history and development of the study of culture (Pt. I) and Cultural Studies (Part II).  This course is a foundation level one course to be completed by all students pursuing ICS Minors/Majors.
