Students who major in anthropology choose one of three tracks:
The Sociocultural Anthropology (SCA) track is for students who want to explore a number of foundational sub-fields within anthropology. For students who choose the Law, Politics, and Economics (LPE) or the Medical Anthropology (MedAnth) track, the selection of required and elective courses is geared toward rigorous study in these respective sub-fields. The courses in each track ensure that students, regardless of track, have systematic understanding of anthropological methods and theories and the discipline's unique contributions as a humanistic social science.
The transcript degree of students in the department will be A.B. in Anthropology. Students who successfully complete the curriculum of their chosen track will receive a departmental attestation on Class Day and may note their track focus on their resumés.
An anthropology major chooses a track or tentative track when declaring the concentration. A track selection form must be completed and filed with the department during the student's junior year by the first day of classes in the spring term. To compare the basic structures of the three tracks, see the comparison table.
