ANTHROPOLOGY AT QUEENS
Anthropology Department at Queens College aims to give students a
knowledge of human origins and development, the varieties of human
cultures, and cultural and social complexities of our species. A major
in Anthropology provides the necessary preparation for graduate
the field, as well as valuable background for careers in education,
international studies, medicine and allied professions, sociology, and
social work, as well as for participation in community organizations.
wishing to major in anthropology may choose between two tracks: general
pre-professional anthropology. Students must declare
their intention to major in anthropology by requesting a
adviser and by completing their concentration form in consultation with
the adviser. Pre-professional majors are
especially encouraged to work
closely with a faculty adviser. Although course requirements are
designed to prevent premature undergraduate overspecialization, there
is sufficient flexibility to permit a student to
biological, or archaeological anthropology. The selection of elective
courses in the field of interest (both from within and outside
department) should be done in consultation with a faculty adviser from
the respective sub-discipline.
