The Pre-Professional Major


Students wishing to major in anthropology may choose between two tracks: general and pre-professional anthropology majors. The pre-professional major requires 39 credits, and is designed for students who wish to pursue graduate studies in anthropology or a related discipline. It requires a more rigorous course schedule with more 300 level courses (including a seminar) than are required for the general major, and a class in anthropological methods and research designs (which fulfills the LASAR requirement for Scientific Methodology and Quantitative Reasoning).

All majors must fill out a concentration form in consultation with an advisor. Pre-professional majors are especially encouraged to meet regularly with a faculty advisor. If they wish to write a senior honors thesis, they must apply to the department during their Junior year. The subject of the thesis will be developed in consultation with their faculty advisor.
Grades below C-minus are not acceptable for courses in the anthropology major. Students who have received such grades in any course used to fulfill the Major requirements must retake these courses and achieve a grade of C-minus or better to be considered for graduation as Anthropology majors.
