48 Credits Required

Students must complete a comprehensive three-tiered Liberal Education Program (LEP). View all requirements of the tiers on the Liberal Education Program. Any credits over 48 are counted toward free electives.

While the choice of courses that fulfill the requirements is generally left up to students, some departments require that students select specific courses to complement their major. This major has specific Tier requirements/restrictions for the following:

Tier 2 – Natural World II: Life & Environment: Select option other than ANT 102

Tier 2 – Social Structure, Conflict, and Consensus: Select option other than ANT 101

Tier 2 – Time and Place: Select option other than ANT 205
