This course is designed to explore what it is to be human and why an understanding of this is important in helping understand the world in which children live and grow up. It provides a range of perspectives outwith education including Archaeology, Genetics, Anthropology and Religious Studies. Students will consider where and when humans first came into being and the balance between our biology and environment in terms of defining who we are; the creation of our identity as people and how children learn to negotiate this as part of their every day being.
