Degree Requirements

"ANTH 1120 6.0 Making Sense of the Modern World" is a Social Science General Education course. If you decide to become an Anthropology major, all six credits count towards your Anthropology program requirements (BUT, you must take another Social Science General Education course to meet that degree requirement. ANTH 1120 CANNOT be used to meet both requirements).

If you have any questions, contact: chranth@yorku.ca

Note:  Please be sure to review the program requirement information as you plan your programme of study each year.
