Anthropology Honors Tutorial Program
The Anthropology Program offers an Honors Tutorial degree through Ohio
University's nationally unique Honors Tutorial College. It extends an
Oxford-style education to gifted students, in which many courses in that
student's area of specialization are taught in a tutorial fashion. This
means the student and faculty member meet for individualized learning
through direct discussion, covering far more breadth and depth of subject
matter than is possible in a lecture course. The Honors Tutorial College
requires entering students to be in the upper 10% of their high school
class, and have a combined SAT score of at least 1200 or an ACT of 27.
Students interested should contact the Honors
Tutorial College directly for additional information.
