The next SOPHOMORE OPEN HOUSE will be scheduled in Spring 2019. Please check back later for details.
How do I know if Anthropology is a good fit?
Take any Anthropology course that interests you. Courses taken before major declaration may be counted towards departmental courses.
- Browse the Anthropology website, especially the Undergraduate pages.
- Talk to a current major.
- Attend office hours with a faculty member or graduate student preceptor. Ask what it's like to "do" anthropology.
- Attend the Sophomore Open House around major declaration each spring.
- Ask the undergraduate administrator. You are welcome to send an email or drop in 116 Aaron Burr Hall.
- Schedule a meeting with the departmental representative (see below).
Ready to declare Anthropology (or would like help deciding)?
Make an appointment in WASE to meet individually with the "Dep Rep" (departmental representative) to plan a course of study or to explore how your interests might fit with what anthropology has to offer. See Dep Rep contact information on this page.
During sophomore concentration declaration in the spring term, go to TigerHub to declare ANT and complete your Departmental Academic Planning Form (DAPF). Then meet with the Dep Rep for fall course selection, either in person or by email, if studying abroad.
If you aren't sure if Anthropology is right for you, but want to explore the possibility, please bring a printed copy of your unofficial transcript to your meeting with the Anthropology Dep Rep.
