The anthropology major requires eight courses. A student must take ANTH 109 Cultural Anthropology; a methods course chosen from SOCI/ANTH 201 Field Research in Local Communities, ANTH 287 Anthropology in Action or SOCI 208 Methods of Social Research; ANTH 283 Anthropological Theory; ANTH 330 Advanced Seminar in Anthropology; and four electives, one of which should be an area course. After consultation with a student’s adviser, one sociology course may count toward the anthropology major. No more than two off-campus courses are ordinarily counted toward the major.


The Advanced Seminar in Anthropology (ANTH-330) serves as the Culminating Experience (CE) for majors.  It is taught on a rotating basis and focuses on selected topics of ethnographical and theoretical interests.  Honors theses and supervised independent study readings or research would also meet the CE requirement
