FYS 106 Mate Choice: From People to Peacocks

Sexual reproduction is a driving factor in the animal world, but how do the principles of mate choice apply to humans? In this course, students will investigate the underlying biology of mate choice in non-human animals, and assess if these principles can be applied to humans as well. Students will then examine this topic from additional perspectives, including how social factors and laws affect both short and long term mate choice decisions in humans.
