General Description / Special Programs
The major in anthropology requires a minimum of ten courses. Anthropology includes a variety of subfields, which are incorporated in the major. It is the goal of the major to introduce students to all subfields. However, students often develop special areas of interest within anthropology. To accommodate this diversity, the major offers two alternative tracks: the Sociocultural Track and the Human Evolution, Prehistory and Material Culture Track.
