Students concentrating in Anthropology must declare one of the six concentration tracks. All tracks require at least nine courses in anthropology. At least five of the nine courses counted toward the concentration must be 1000-level or higher. Seniors may be permitted to enroll in graduate seminars (2000-level courses) with the permission of the instructor. Students also have the opportunity to work independently for concentration credit by taking an independent reading and research course in anthropology (ANTH1970). Independent reading and research courses can be taken a maximum of two times.
Courses in anthropology are defined as (1) having the ANTH prefix, (2) listed in the ANTH XLIST on Courses @ Brown, or (3) taught by an anthropologist in another department and containing significant content in anthropological thought, theory, and methodology. For (3), please consult with the DUS to determine if the course can be applied towards the concentration. Concentrators should select their courses in Anthropology in consultation with their concentration advisor.
All Anthropology tracks are compatible with the Engaged Scholars Program.
