Department of Anthropology Senior Honors Thesis
A general anthropology is informed by a concern with other peoples and a commitment to understanding them through a framework that always includes ourselves--biologically, culturally, and archaeologically. The Department of Anthropology fosters the development of our majors as anthropologists in general. This includes encouraging majors to prepare a Departmental Senior Honors Thesis. These are produced on specialized topics that speak to the more general enterprise of anthropology. Writing a thesis is good preparation for graduate school and other undertakings. Moreover, it is good for anthropology.
Requirements to complete a senior honors thesis are explicated at the Anthropology Senior Honors Thesis page.
Chair of Departmental Honors Committee: Shawn Parkhurst
Please note: The Departmental Senior Honors Thesis is distinct from the University Honors Thesis. For the latter, see the website of the University Honors Program.
