The anthropology major requires at least 5 units of credit. Minimum requirements are described below. Note that all departmental courses are one semester in length (1/2 unit each) and that all courses have limited enrollment.
An introductory course in each of the three anthropological subdisciplines is required: physical anthropology (ANTH 111); archaeology (ANTH 112); and cultural anthropology (ANTH 113). These courses should be taken as early in the major as practicable and may be taken in any sequence. All upper-level courses in anthropology normally have one of the foundation courses as prerequisite.
A minimum of six upper-level courses (3 units) is required, including at least one course in each of the three anthropological subdisciplines (biological anthropology, archaeology, and cultural anthropology).
All departmental majors must enroll in Anth 465 (History of Anthropological Thought) during the fall semester of their senior year.
