Degree: Bachelor of Science

Credit Hours: 33

In addition to completing the requirements for this major, students must also complete the degree requirements specified in the Academic Regulations  section of this catalog.

Courses within this major may also satisfy general education requirements. Please consult the Liberal Arts and Sciences General Education Requirements  for more information.


*It is recommended that ANTH 210  be taken within the first 15 credit hours of the major.

Complete 9 credit hours from the following:


  • The number of 300-level Anthropology elective credit hours you must take depends on whether you complete ANTH 491 Research Methods (3)  OR ANTH 493 Field School in Archaeology (4-8)  (8 credit hours) OR ANTH 494 Field Work (3-8)  to satisfy the research methods requirement for Anthropology. For example, if you complete the 8 credit hour ANTH 493 Field School in Archaeology , 3 credit hours will satisfy the Research Methods requirement and the remaining 5 credit hours will count toward your electives in the Anthropology major.
  • 9 credit hours are allowed from any combination of ANTH 381 , ANTH 384 , ANTH 385 , ANTH 386 , ANTH 387 , or ANTH 388 .
  • Students majoring in anthropology are encouraged to include courses in sociology, history, political science, international studies, psychology, economics, statistics and computer programming in their program of study.
  • The anthropology faculty very strongly recommends that anthropology majors take MATH 104 Elementary Statistics  or a higher level statistics course as one of the two math courses fulfilling the general education requirements. This requirement should be fulfilled as early in an individual’s program as possible and certainly within the first 6 credit hours after declaration of the anthropology major.
