About the course

CIS 106 / ANTH 258 is a highly interdisciplinary course that approaches fundamental issues in Anthropology and Computer Science.

Case Study: Recreating Baures

For the past two renditions of the class, the work created by the students was used to develop a historically accurate landscape of Pre-Columbian Baures, Bolivia, in Unreal Engine 4. The goal of the landscape is to be explorable and interactive, such that audiences can learn about the region and the time period depicted through a more “hands-on” approach.
