Sociocultural Double Major

Program Requirements

The Anthropology Department aims to produce in students a view of the world we call the anthropological perspective; seeing the varieties of humanity in holistic, worldwide terms, and an appreciation for the creativity and diversity of humankind. Toward that end the Anthropology curriculum offers a diversity of classes on peoples and cultures of the world, past and present. The socio-cultural emphasis in the Department instructs students in current methods and theory of anthropology to provide them with the tools necessary to apply learned principles in whatever field they might embrace. We seek to instill in students the fundamental tenets and ethics of the discipline. The double major is no exception. The Double Major is only available as a secondary major to students completing a primary major in another field. The purpose is to allow students with other majors to add the perspectives that anthropology is uniquely qualified to provide.
