Modified Major

Modified Major

The Modified Major consists of seven courses in anthropology plus four courses above the prerequisite level in one or more other department(s) or program(s). Of the anthropology courses, one must be ANTH 01, 03, 05, 06, 08, or 09 and another must be a culminating experience—ANTH 72, 73, 74, 75, or 76. The seven major courses must include at least one course from TWO of the three subfields (ARCH, BIOL, CULT). Students wishing to modify their Anthropology major must submit a written rationale that makes clear the coherence and purpose of their modified major.

How to Modify Your Anthropology Major

Students wishing to modify their Anthropology major must submit a written rationale that makes clear the coherence and purpose of their modified major. This rationale must be reviewed by and approved by any faculty in the Anthropology department, and must also be submitted to the Registrar. For more information on modified majors, see the ORC/Catalog.

If you are interested in pursuing the Honors Program and the faculty approves your thesis proposal, you must enroll in ANTH 88. This course would be counted as the twelfth course beyond the eleven required to complete the modified major.
