Requirements for Major in Anthropology and Sociology

Although anthropology and sociology are separate and distinct disciplines, they also have many things in common: theories and methodologies, a focus on cultural similarities and differences and a commitment to international and/or global studies. Nearly all students choosing one of the two tracks outlined above will take courses in both anthropology and sociology, but some students may find that their academic needs are best met by a major that explicitly combines both fields of study.

Eight Units Including:

At least two of these upper division courses must be at the 300-level or higher where the course requirements should include research-based assignments.

Additional Requirements

  • All department majors will be required to take a senior exit exam during the spring semester as part of the department’s assessment program. Participation in additional assessment activities may be required.
  • No more than one unit of internship credit may be counted toward the major.
  • All anthropology and sociology courses must be taken for a numerical grade, except those offered only on a credit/no credit basis.
  • No more than two units from an off-campus study program may be counted toward the major.
