Anthropology Concentration Requirements

The purpose of these two models is to ensure students are trained in the fundamentals of anthropology.  Given the breadth of the discipline and the various needs of different students, two distinct models are presented.  Each adequately covers the core of anthropological training but in different ways, one allowing more depth in selected areas (Model One) while the other provides a traditional four-field base designed to transfer as a core curriculum (Model Two).  Regardless of which model a student opts for, however, the faculty STRONGLY ENCOURAGES students to customize and add depth to their fields of study by taking courses both of practical use and personal interest.  Please discuss what options might be best for you with one of our faculty members.
