Sometime in the last 5 million years, natural selection created a creature with a very large brain that walked upright, was adept at making and using tools, developed language, and came to rely heavily on imitation, social learning, and culture. Biological anthropologists study all facets of this process. Biological anthropology is interesting and important because an evolutionary perspective provides a rich source of insight about why we are the way we are. First, we place strong emphasis on evolutionary processes that mold behavior. We will be committed to understanding how these processes have shaped the behavior of living primates, fossil hominids, and contemporary humans. Second, we take the role of culture seriously. We will have an interest in how and why culture emerged, and how culture interacts with other processes to shape behavior.

Fifty

Years of Excellence

During the 2012-2013 academic year, SPCS is celebrating its 50th year of meeting the educational needs of adult and non-traditional learners in the Richmond area. We opened as University College on the corner of Lombardy and Grace, where we started serving Richmond’s part-time and evening educational needs. We moved to the University of Richmond campus in the 1970s, and we renamed ourselves the School of Continuing Studies in 1995. We’re celebrating this milestone the entire year. In August we’ll finalize our renaming process, becoming officially the School of Professional and Continuing Studies. In September we’ll spend an entire week celebrating with events and activities. In November we’ll host the Hays and Margaret Crimmel Colloquium. We’ll culminate the celebratory year in May, when we’ll honor and graduate our first class of students from the renamed SPCS. We hope you’ll visit spcs.richmond.edu to learn more about the upcoming celebration!
