DEPARTMENTAL AWARDS

The Department of Anthropology gives seven awards at commencement to students who have demonstrated excellence in their coursework. Departmental honors at commencement are awarded to majors and minors on the basis of academic average and other indicators of excellence. Students with grade point averages of 3.5 or better, who would like to receive High Honors in Anthropology, should apply to the department during their junior year for permission to write an honors thesis on a subject chosen by them in consultation with a member of the faculty.
