The Division of Anthropology at CSUF offers an undergraduate major and minor in Anthropology and a graduate degree in Anthropology.
The Bachelor of Arts in Anthropology requires 45 units for the major, consisting of core courses, upper-division courses and elective coursework. A “C” (2.0) average and a “C-” (1.7) or better is required in all courses applied to the major. ANTH 480 and ANTH 481 fulfill the university’s upper-division writing requirement for Anthropology, and each must be passed with a “C” (2.0) or better.
The program offers advanced study of general anthropology, while simultaneously encouraging specialization in one (or more) of the anthropological subdisciplines: archaeology; cultural anthropology; anthropological linguistics; and evolutionary anthropology. Opportunities for field and laboratory research, and other related learning experiences permit students to enlarge upon formal classroom training and work independently with original data. Students may pursue a thesis or project of either a traditional or more exploratory character. Efforts are made to assist individuals to plan programs that will meet their individual needs and interests.
