Major Concentration in Anthropology (36 credits)

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. Nevertheless, students should pay careful attention to the prerequisites for upper year 300, 400, and 500 level courses.

REQUIREMENTS

Minimum number of Anthropology credits (unless otherwise stated)

Course selection for this concentration must satisfy the following requirements:

  • 6 credits of 200-level in Anthropology
  • 6 credits of 350-level core courses in Anthropology

    Students are recommended to complete their 350-level core courses during their U2 year. It is important to note that each 350-level core course is offered only once per academic year (either Fall term or Winter term, but not both). Students should plan accordingly.
