Honors in Anthropology
Honors candidates are required to:
- fulfill the standard concentration requirements
- take two additional courses (for example, ANTH1970s for thesis preparation)
- submit an approved honors thesis
A student wishing to be considered for honors must have a majority of A’s in the concentration and should apply to the Concentration Advisor no later than October 15th of the 7th semester. An application consists of a brief statement addressing the focus of a proposed thesis signed by two faculty members from the Anthropology Department who have agreed to serve as the student’s honors committee, one as honors thesis advisor, the other as a reader. Students are expected to meet with their committee members periodically during the year to discuss their progress and set deadlines for submission of drafts. All honors candidates are required to give a short presentation on their thesis in a Departmental symposium typically scheduled in April.
