The Major Concentration is especially appropriate for students who aim to take courses across several sub-disciplinary or topical concentrations within Anthropology, or for whom specialization is premature. There are no prerequisites for admission to the Major Concentration in Anthropology. Students are encouraged to take a course in quantitative methods (listed under the Honours program), but this course cannot count as part of this concentration.
