Overview

No two anthropology majors are likely to take exactly the same courses, since these will reflect both your personal interests and course availability over a number of semesters. You are not required to enroll in all of the elective courses listed on your Declaration of Major form. Your interests may change and there may be scheduling issues making it impossible to take certain courses. Required courses must be taken, however. Nonetheless, the course sequence you choose for your Declaration of Major form may be thought of as a kind of map plotting your course as an anthropology major. You may change some of the details, but the coursework you complete for your diploma will reflect your focus within the field of anthropology.
