*The Pathways curriculum is typically 42 credits. However, the Social Studies Teacher (with Anthropology major) B.A. includes three courses (ANTH 1200, ANTH 3135, and SEED 2001 or CBSE 2001) that also satisfy Pathways requirements. Therefore, students majoring in Social Studies Teacher (with Anthropology major) B.A. only need to complete 33 additional Pathways credits.
The four-year degree map is designed to help you take the right courses in the right order so you can graduate in four years. It also helps you distinguish what courses qualify as Pathways courses, or Major courses, or General Elective courses. Ideally, you should follow the four-year degree map as closely as possible, but you are free to make some adjustments so long as the prerequisite requirements are satisfied.
Students who wish to pursue a B.A. degree in Secondary Education for Social Studies Teacher 7-12 must complete one of the following majors: Africana Studies, American Studies, Anthropology, Economics, History, Political Science, Puerto Rican and Latino Studies, or Sociology. (Study must include within the major, or in addition to courses in the major, study in economics, government, and at least 21 credits in the history and geography of the United States and the world.)
There is a lot of choice in the Anthropology major, and therefore a lot of flexibility. There are various course-sequences students can follow to complete the major, plus various subfields of anthropology (cultural, linguistic, biological anthropology, or archaeology) within the major students may pursue. Thus it is strongly recommended that students meet with an advisor from CAASS and from the Department of Anthropology and Archaeology early on in order to customize their degree map according to their interests.
