Earn Honors in Anthropology

Students with a strong academic record (a GPA of 3.5 or higher) are encouraged to pursue honors in the major. Eligible and interested students should contact the Director of Undergraduate Studies (DUS) and request the required forms. If the student’s GPA is between 3.2 and 3.5, they must formally petition the DUS to be accepted into the program. Once accepted, the student is given a contract that includes forms to be signed by a supervising professor as various steps of the program are completed (see below). The student is expected to maintain an overall GPA of 3.5 while undertaking honors research.

Students in the Anthropology, Health, and Medicine Specialization should choose either the Socio-Cultural or the Biological Anthropology Honor’s process in consultation with their advisor.
