Honors in Anthropology

Outstanding senior majors in Anthropology may be selected by the department for possible participation in the Honors Program. As determined by the College Honors Committee, a student must have a GPA of 3.5 to be eligible for the program. The department will review the list of eligible majors in the second semester of their junior year and will contact those students considered to be qualified to complete an honor's project.

Candidates will pursue research under the direction of a faculty committee, enroll in the Honors sequence (495A, 495B), and take a graduate course (though under extraordinary circumstances petitions will be considered to waive this requirement).
