Students who intend to enroll in a graduate program in Sociology should complete the Sociology emphasis and consider enrolling in SOC 374 as one of the Sociology emphasis electives.

Students who wish to attend graduate school in Anthropology should complete the Anthropology emphasis. Those who have a particular interest in Archaeology should select the Anthropology emphasis and should enroll in ANTH 205 and 377. In addition, they should consider taking other Archaeology courses within the Anthropology track. Those students considering a graduate program in Archaeology are advised to take, as well, ANTH 207, 252, and an elective course in cultural anthropology. Many graduate programs in this field of Anthropology want to see a degree of expertise in the other three fields of the discipline.
