Anthropology Department Electives List

For the Anthropology major, the choice of electives must satisfy these rules:

  1. At least one of the major electives must be a Methods class. The list below indicates which classes are Methods classes.

  2. At least three different subfields of Anthropology must be represented in the 3000 and 4000-level electives. The 4 subfields to choose from are Archaeological, Human Health & Biology (HHB), Linguistic, and Socio-Cultural. The list below indicates which subfield(s) the classes are associated with.

  3. Students must have at least 15 hours of electives at the 3000- and 4000-levels. 

Note that some Anthropology electives may fulfill more than one subfield, or can fulfill both subfield and research methods categories. In these cases, completing one course may
satisfy two distribution requirements. For example, a student whose first class is designated Biological & Research Methods and whose second class is Socio-Cultural & Linguistic would fulfill requirements #1 and #2 above with those two classes alone.

The placement of rotating topics course numbers, independent study, unequated transfer courses, and study abroad will be decided by the adviser based on content.
