Honors in Anthropology
Strong anthropology students are invited to propose a senior honors project. Students can apply for a Mouat Whiteford research grant to help fund their thesis project.
More Opportunities: Off-Campus Studies
An appreciation and understanding of human cultural diversity is one of the hallmarks of contemporary anthropology, and although we do not require it, we strongly urge our majors to study abroad and to learn a foreign language.
A description of off-campus study programs that may be of interest to majors and information about planning for off-campus study can be found on the Office of International Education website.
We make every effort to accommodate difficult schedules and often are able to count coursework taken abroad as part of the major. Students should begin planning early in their careers for study abroad in order to assure that they will be able to complete all institutional requirements as well as study abroad in four years. First year is not too early!
