Undergraduate Program

Anthropology focuses on understanding the diversity of human culture, both past and present, and how humans interact with each other and their environment.  Topics range from the evolution of the human species, the chemical analysis of ancient human bone, solving community-based problems in contemporary society, and understanding the nature of corporate culture.

Independent Study Courses - 3IS3, 4G03, 4GG3 (Offered Every Term)

It is incumbent upon the student to secure arrangements with the supervising instructor prior to registration in one of these courses. Supervising instructors will indicate their agreement to supervise an independent study course by sending a confirmation e-mail to the student, after which the student must submit a one-page outline of the course topic and proposed activities to the Anthropology Department. Please include the course code on the outline.

The outline and e-mail from the supervising instructor is due 14 days prior to the beginning of the term in which the student will be taking the course (e.g. mid-August for Term 1, mid-December for Term 2). Please submit the outline and permission e-mail from the supervisor to Sophie Goellnicht, Undergraduate Administrative Assistant, goellnsk@mcmaster.ca
