Three-Year Degree Plans

The three-year degree plan was created to demonstrate that it is possible for you to graduate in six regular and three summer semesters with a degree in anthropology. However, a three-year degree plan is not designed for every student, and it assumes:

  • No remedial course work is required.
  • The student does not fail any classes.
  • The student does not change either the major or minor.
  • The student is willing to take classes each summer.

Also, a three-year degree plan does not take into account dual credit or transfer credit that you may bring with you upon admission to the University.

Two degree options

The anthropology program provides two options for completing your degree in anthropology: Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science. Both the Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science in anthropology are non-comprehensive degree options, which require that you complete a minor.

The Bachelor of Arts degree offers a broad liberal arts education that includes courses in foreign language, world history, philosophy and fine arts, as well as 30 hours in anthropology

The Bachelor of Science requires 39 hours in anthropology and offers a greater degree of specialization in the field than the BA.
