The specific requirements for the BS Anthropology degree and the 2nd Degree in Anthropology may vary from one academic year to another, so please check the checklists below. The university maintains catalogs for the past seven years at http://registrar.boisestate.edu/catalogs/.   Depending upon what catalog year you choose to graduate under, print off your academic degree requirement checklist from the list below, and keep track of what courses you need in order to complete your degree. You may also find the suggested “Finish in Four” Graduation Plan template useful to assist you in completing your degree in four years.   If you want to change your degree catalog year, you need to contact the Registrar’s Office at (208) 426-2932 or email them with your request at regmail@boisestate.edu.  They will make the change for you with your request.

STATISTICS REQUIREMENT
You are required to take either MATH 254 Applied Statistics with Computers, POLS 298 Introduction to Political Inquiry or PSYCH 295 Statistical Methods.  (SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT:  If you take MATH 254 you also fulfill the anthropology major’s math requirement, and this would free you up to take another elective course.)  SOC 310 Elementary Social Statistics will be accepted with an Adjustment in Academic Requirements form.

LANGUAGE REQUIREMENT
You are required to take a one year sequence in a modern language (examples: Basque 101,102, French 111,112 or Japanese 201,202). We do not accept American Sign Language or “dead” languages such as Latin or Greek for our major’s language requirement.  See the full list of modern language sequences in the Undergraduate Catalog.

WORKSHOPS
No more than 3 workshops are allowed to fulfill the upper division electives for the Anthropology major.  No more than 3 workshops are allowed for the Anthropology minor.  No more than 3 workshops are allowed for the 2nd Degree in Anthropology. Workshops are not allowed to fulfill the upper division electives for the Native American Studies minor unless the workshop contains Native American content.


2nd Degree in Anthropology

The second degree in anthropology is designed for those students who have already graduated with a degree in another discipline and are returning to get a second degree in anthropology.  Thirty additional credits in anthropology are required. This degree assumes that you have already fulfilled the university foundations requirements.

2nd Degree in Anthropology Checklist

  • Any student wanting a second degree in Anthropology must meet with an anthropology faculty advisor.
  • The advisor and the department chair must sign the checklist.
  • A copy of the approved checklist must be sent to the Graduation Evaluator in the Registrar’s Office (Admin Bldg, Room 110).
