How to Declare an Anthropology Major or Minor

Students wishing to declare an Anthropology major (ANTH-MAJOR) or minor (ANTH-MINOR) must fill in a worksheet (available on the tables in the hallway on the fourth floor of Silsby Hall and in the anthropology administrative office - Silsby 408). After confirming with the department administrator that the courses listed on your worksheet meet the general requirements of the major or minor, please consult with your faculty advisor in the department to discuss the plan and ask for their signature on the worksheet. Lastly, before submitting the signed worksheet to the department administrator, you must update or enter your plan in DartWorks. When the plan in DartWorks matches the worksheet, the anthropology administrator will approve the plan.

For those students wishing to modify the anthropology major, you must consult with your faculty advisor in the department to prepare and submit a written rationale explaining how the four courses outside of anthropology you want to use to modify your Anthropology major constitute a coherent modification of anthropology and relate to your anthropology major courses.  The four courses used to modify anthropology can come from one department or program (ANTH-ANTH:XXXX, "Anthropology modified with XXXX"), or from up to four different departments or programs (ANTH-ANTH:MOD, "Anthropology Modified"). In addition, you must fill in a worksheet and ask your faculty advisor to sign it. Once your advisor approves your rationale and signs your worksheet, you must update or submit your major plan and rationale in DartWorks for approval by the anthropology administrator.

For the Global Health Minor in Anthropology (ANGH-MINOR), students should consult with either Professor Sienna Craig or Professor Elizabeth Carpenter-Song about how best to select courses to satisfy the different requirements and fill in a Global Health Minor worksheet. The worksheet must be signed by your faculty advisor and then submitted to the anthropology administrator. Once your advisor approves your worksheet, you must submit your Global Health minor plan on DartWorks for approval.
