Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs of Instruction


An interdisciplinary major with a minimum of 11 course credits, which include:

  • ANT 101 - Cultural Anthropology (1)
  • ANT 484 - Qualitative Research Methods and Fieldwork (1)
  • ANT 483 - Anthropological Theory (1)
  • ANT 487 - SOC/SAN/ANT Senior Seminar (1)
  • Five additional Anthropology courses, of which at least two are at or above the 300 level.
  • One course in Sociology at the 200 or 300 level.
  • One 300-level course in a discipline that complements the student’s interest and the particular subject-area concentration chosen outside of SOC or ANT.
  • Note: A maximum of two course credits in Anthropology may be earned through individualized research and/or  internships. Course credit in individualized research and/or internships outside of Anthropology do not count towards the major.  No more than three 100-level courses may be counted toward the total of 11 course credits.
  • Because anthropology so centrally concerns itself with the lived experiences of people in other cultures, students are strongly encouraged to take advantage of the opportunity to study outside the U.S.  Off-campus blocks should focus on culture, language and/or history and should be selected in consultation with one’s advisor.
