Students are required to declare anthropology as a major before registering for classes for the fall of the junior year. If students plan to add anthropology as a second major, we also encourage them to do before registering for classes for the fall of the junior year. None of the required courses or any 300-level anthropology course—except AN-399 —fulfilling the major may be taken on an S/U basis.
