All moderating students need to maintain a 3.0 or above in all Anthropology classes.

 At least one of the ANTH courses must involve field research as a central component.  We also strongly recommend students take a foreign language.  Often students combine anthropology with one of the area studies programs or concentrations, such as Human Rights, Gender and Sexuality Studies, or Environmental and Urban Studies.
