Majoring & Minoring
Paired Major: Sociology and Anthropology
Students may choose a paired major in Sociology and Anthropology by counting Anthropology 35-104 and Sociology 34-114 or 34-124 in both majors.
Paired Major: Sociology and Feminist Studies
Students may choose a 15-course paired major between Sociology and Feminist Studies by meeting all requirements in both majors, and counting two of the courses that contribute to the two programs. Those courses include Sociology 34-234, 34-264, 34-274, and 34-324.
Paired Major: Anthropology and Environmental Studies
Students may choose a 15-course paired major in Anthropology and Environmental Studies by double-counting two courses that count towards both the Anthropology and Environmental Studies majors. Currently those courses are Anthropology 35-334 Global Environmental Justice and Feminist Studies 04-254 Latinx Spiritualities. Other courses may be substituted by permission of the chairs of the Environmental Studies and Anthropology program faculty. This may especially be true for courses taken during study abroad.
Paired Major: Anthropology and Feminist Studies
Students may choose a 15-course paired major in Anthropology and Feminist Studies by double-counting two courses that contribute to Anthropology and Feminist Studies. Currently those courses are Anthropology 35-244 Race, Class and Gender in the Caribbean, 35-334 Global Environmental Justice, Feminist Studies 04-254 Latinx Spiritualities, and Religion 19-324 Women, Goddesses and Religion, although other contributing courses may be substituted by permission of the chair of the Feminist Studies Committee and the Anthropology faculty, and new courses may be added.
Anthropology within International Studies
It is possible to complete a program in International Studies that combines a disciplinary major in Anthropology with an additional “Concentration” in a geographical area of emphasis: either Latin America or Global. Two courses on the geographical area of emphasis must be taken within the disciplinary major. The Concentration consists of three courses in the geographical area of emphasis; three courses in an appropriate language beyond the general education requirement; and a semester or longer study abroad experience. Students must choose a study abroad program that allows them to do independent ethnographic research that they will then use in their capstone project. See the International Studies Program for further details.
