Honors Tutorial College Anthropology Program

The Anthropology program supports an Anthropology 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.
