A total of nine courses with the ANTH subject code are required for the major. 

Up to two courses in sociology may be used to satisfy electives and, with prior approval, one or two courses in other departments, or special tutorials taken with anthropology faculty, may be credited toward the major as electives if such courses complement departmental offerings and lie within a student’s specific area of anthropological interest. Majors are strongly encouraged to enroll in anthropology courses taught by faculty on both campuses, since the disciplinary specializations and course offerings differ at Rose Hill and Lincoln Center.
