- About Plattsburgh
The anthropology major requires 36 academic credits of course work (12 courses), at least 27 of which must be derived from anthropology courses.
The program includes two introductory courses normally taken in your freshman year, one methods-oriented course selected from physical anthropology, archaeology and linguistics, one cultural area course, two dimensions of culture courses, a world issues course, an advanced writing course centered on ethnographic methods, and a senior project or seminar.
Nine credits (3 courses) are also aimed at the your career objectives, and are chosen in consultation with your academic advisor. These courses may be additional anthropology courses, or may courses associated with a minor, another major, an internship, a study abroad experience, or independent study projects.
