Bachelor of Arts in Anthropology Mount Holyoke College


Course info


Anthropology is devoted to the study of human cultural diversity through time and around the world. Its cross-cultural approach helps students not only appreciate diversity, but reflect back on the unstated assumptions of their own cultures. By making the foreign familiar and the familiar foreign, anthropology helps us make sense of the human condition. But diversity is not fixed. It is ever changing, always in flux. Anthropology explores cultural contact, diffusion, transformation and resilience in a world in which connections are increasing at a rapid pace.

Anthropology Major

The major in anthropology exposes students to a variety of cultures and to the many different topics, theories, and methods of the field. It requires a minimum of 32 credits in anthropology, with 12 of those taken at the 300 level. All courses are designed to contribute in various ways to the College's Learning Goals and the Anthropology Learning Goals.

Required courses:

  • 105 Introductions to Cultural Anthropology
  • 235 Development of Anthropological Thought (or Sociology 223)
  • 275 Doing Ethnography: Research Methods in Anthropology
  • 350 Issues in Contemporary Anthropological Theory
  • One cultural area course

Please note - the cultural area requirement can be fulfilled in various ways:

1. An area course in anthropology

2. Studies abroad

3. Foreign language through two semesters at the intermediate level

4. An area course in another discipline.

Only option 1 (area course in anthropology) provides academic credit towards the major. The others satisfy the cultural area requirement and perhaps credit towards graduation but not credit toward the 32 required for the major.
