What is anthropology?
Anthropology is the inter-disciplinary study of humans, past and present. Using social, biological, and physical sciences, and humanities, anthropologists research the complexity of culture and societies across human history. There are various specialties in anthropology such as: applied, bio-cultural, and cultural. OSU offers a bachelor’s degree in anthropology with a general option. This degree provides students the greatest flexibility in career relevant skills and a broad foundation upon which to launch a graduate student career.
How advising works
Most advising will take place by email or phone.
Anthropology is a program within the College of Liberal Arts (CLA), which uses a dual advising system. This means Ecampus anthropology majors will have two advisors. CLA advising, http://www.oregonstate.edu/cla/advising, will assist you with questions about university policies and procedures, and your baccalaureate core (“bac core”) and liberal arts requirements. Once you have been admitted to the program, your first step will be to set-up an advising appointment with CLA advising.
The Anthropology Program Ecampus Advisor, Brenda Kellar, will guide you through the requirements of the anthropology major. Once you have completed your advising appointment with CLA advising I will receive a pdf summarizing your program status. At that point you will need to contact me, so I can guide you through the anthropology degree requirements. You can find more information about the OSU anthropology program and advising on my webpage: http://oregonstate.edu/cla/anthropology/kellar.
