ANTH 5270 - Senior Seminar



Goals: The goal of the course is to provide anthropology majors, in the final semester of their senior year, the opportunity to bring together the variety of content and knowledge from various anthropology courses they have taken to broadly address theoretical or conceptual issues of contemporary relevance in anthropology.

Content: Taught in a seminar format, it is intended as a capstone class in the major that emphasizes active student discussion, critique and the production of high quality written work. This course is intended to reaffirm the learning objectives of the anthropology program, and to be a gateway to using anthropological knowledge beyond the university in the world of work, or professional training in the discipline.

Taught: One senior seminar is offered in rotation by an anthropology department faculty member during the spring semester of each year

Prerequisites: ANTH 1160 and at least one 3000-level anthropology course, or consent of the instructor

Credits: 4
