Major Requirements

 All students who major in anthropology receive an Applied Baccalaureate degree.

In addition to the UGA Core Curriculum and Franklin College Requirements, students majoring in anthropology must take the following courses: 

  • Introduction to Anthropology, ANTH 1102, 1102E, or ANTH 2120H; this introductory course is a prerequisite for many anthropology courses (3 credit hours)
  • Two 2000-level courses with the ANTH prefix (6 credit hours)
  • One upper-division (3000- or 4000-level) three-hour course in each of the three main subfields: biological anthropology, cultural anthropology, and archaeology (9 credit hours).
  • Six additional three-hour elective courses in anthropology (18 credit hours).
  • Majors must also take ANTH 3900 Professional Development, ideally in the fall of their third (Junior) year

Courses being offered in the current or following semester can be found on the departmental website and through Athena. Please see the UGA Bulletin to see the range of available courses. Please note that not all courses are taught in all years. During advising we will help you construct a specific curriculum that will help you achieve your academic goals.
