Honors Program

The Department of Sociology and Anthropology offers a major with honors in anthropology. Information describing the requirements for the major with honors is available in the Student's Guide, which can be found on the department website. Students considering graduate school in anthropology are particularly encouraged to pursue this option.


Students also may wish to take courses in other departments that complement a four-field approach to Anthropology. While the Anthropology faculty encourages students to explore additional coursework in archeology, linguistics, and physical anthropology, as well as cultural and area studies, these courses cannot be used as Anthropology electives.
