Program Overview

Anthropology is the study of the human species as a whole. As holistic discipline, anthropology requires mastery of a variety of fields. The Honors Tutorial program in anthropology balances a commitment to breadth and rigor with an opportunity for self-disciplined and highly motivated students to explore fundamental and cutting-edge issues creatively. It is a four year program during which time students are expected to take a tutorial course each semester, along with language, collateral studies and upper-division anthropology courses. This enables students to acquire the full range of skills necessary to successfully continue in graduate study. Students will have excellent opportunities for intensive study with the seven anthropologists in the department.
