Declaring Anthropology, Step-by-Step

Ready to declare Anthropology and select departmental courses?

Spring 2023 instructions for Anthropology

If you are uncertain whether Anthropology is a good fit for you, please schedule an appointment to meet with the Anthropology Director of Undergraduate Studies (DUS) or send an email to [email protected] to request an alternative meeting date and time before sophomore concentration declaration (March 30 - April 17). 

STEP 1.  Declare Anthropology in TigerHub. If you happen to know which Anthropology “Track” you want to declare, then you can do so as well. But don’t worry if you don’t know which track you want to declare in Anthropology. Sociocultural Anthropology (SCA) is the default track. You will be able to change it later. See Tracks for more information. 

STEP 2.  Fill out our Sophomore Advising Form(link is external) online. Your answers will help us learn a bit about you. The form also serves to guide you in understanding departmental course requirements.

STEP 3.  Also fill out your Academic Planning Form (APF) in TigerHub. We will have access to your academic record after you have declared Anthropology as your major. Please take the time to complete your APF thoughtfully and thoroughly. Please answer every question on the form. Please do not simply select your courses without answering the questions.

STEP 4.  After you have submitted your APF in Step 3 above, you will receive an email from the Undergraduate Administrator with further instructions or to confirm approval of your APF. Please expect a normal response time of 1-2 business days.

STEP 5.  At any step during this process, you may email [email protected] or make an appointment with the DUS or the undergraduate administrator to ask questions.

STEP 6.  After your APF is approved, you may enroll in fall courses for your junior year.  Your assigned course enrollment date in TigerHub is April 19.
