Kettler Hall G11A ~ 260-481-6272 ~ www.ipfw.edu/soca/anthhome.htm

Courses in anthropology provide an understanding of the nature of cultures and help you assess various explanations of human behavior; they also assist in the development of analytical and critical abilities. The curriculum is structured to include studies in the history and theory of anthropology, in four anthropological fields (ethnology, archaeology, bioanthropology, and linguistics), in at least two different world ethnographic areas, and in topical specializations. The program helps you prepare for graduate study, for teaching, and for careers in which the understanding of various cultures is an asset.

Although a minor is not required for the B.A. with a major in anthropology, an outside concentration is recommended. Fifteen credits in history, political science, psychology, or sociology support the concentration.

To earn the B.A. with a major in anthropology, you must fulfill the requirements of IPFW (see Part 7) and the School of Arts and Sciences (see Part 3), and satisfactorily complete the following requirements:
