How to Declare?

To start the process of declaring a major or minor in Anthropology, please send a brief email to the Director of the Undergraduate Program, just expressing interest in declaring an Anthropology major or minor, and they will arrange a time for an appointment. At the meeting the Director of the Undergraduate Program will assign you a member of the Anthropology faculty, who will serve as your major advisor. When you meet with your advisor, she or he will finish signing you up and help you with your major or minor declaration form. 

On the day of your appointment with your major advisor, bring along a major or minor declaration form (pick it up in Monroe Hall or find it online) and access your Academic Requirement Report in SIS. You don't need to print out the whole Academic Requirement Report (which can be many pages), but you do need to remember which Anthropology courses you have taken and when you took them. It also helps to look over the Anthropology section of the Undergraduate Record before your meeting, so that you have an idea of what the requirements are and what courses you would like to use to complete your major or minor.

Once you have declared the major or minor, SIS will continue to track the fulfillment for your Anthropology major requirements. We encourage you to make an advising appointment with your advisor every term.
