The requirements of the program make it possible to pursue a double major in many disciplines such as biology, psychology, religious studies, history, and geology. Students who declare anthropology as a second major should consult with the anthropology advisor as soon as possible to ensure fulfillment of anthropology requirements.
A major in anthropology also combines well with a variety of area studies certificate programs as well as with certificates in women’s studies, global studies, geographic information systems, and historic preservation.
Students with an overall GPA of 3.25 or above and a GPA in anthropology courses of 3.50 or above will be graduated from the department with honors, pending the submission and acceptance of a paper representing substantial student research. The honors paper may be an expanded version of a paper from a course or may result from independent research. The successful completion of a linguistics course is recommended.
