This program is open to Anthropology majors who have completed 15 hours of anthropology courses and successfully maintained a 3.25 grade point average in Anthropology and a 3.0 grade point average overall.


The application process consists of arranging a research project with a faculty mentor, providing the faculty member with a transcript to verify the GPA requirements, and agreement on the project. Although an Anthropology SAGES Capstone can be a library research paper, the Honors Tutorial must be a research project. In addition, the capstone and honors must be different projects. The faculty mentor will give permission for students accepted into the Honors Program to register for ANTH 391 and ANTH 392 Honors Tutorial in the spring of their junior year and the fall of their senior year. The primary product of the Honors project is a research paper which will be made available for review by all Anthropology faculty before the end of the fall semester of the senior year.
