Notes

Students selecting a major in Anthropology/Sociology are strongly encouraged to learn a modern foreign language, study abroad, complete an internship, complete departmental honors (for those who qualify, see below), or otherwise enhance their educational experience.

Those who plan to continue in graduate school are advised to take a course in statistics. Students desiring teacher certification with a major in Anthropology/Sociology must consult with a member of the Education Department.

Departmental Honors: Honors theses allow exceptional majors the opportunity to apply the methods and theories they have learned to a rigorous, extended, and in-depth original fieldwork project of their own design and execution. Anthropology/Sociology majors with a 3.5 minimum GPA may submit a proposal as juniors, engage in independent research and fieldwork, and write a substantial paper which will be presented to the department or campus community. See department for guidelines and application. Honors students will enroll in HON-499 Departmental Honors - Anthropology/Sociology.
