Departmental Honors in Anthropology
- Lambda Alpha Anthropology Honors Society
- Departmental Honors: Senior Honors Thesis
- Honors Tutorial College Anthropology Program
All Anthropology majors of senior rank are eligible to write a Senior Honors Thesis . In addition to rank, the student must have a 3.5 GPA overall and in Anthropology, must have a research topic of suitable anthropological interest, and must have a faculty sponsor. The student who succeeds receives a diploma which recognizes the "Honors" status in Anthropology upon graduation. Students interested in doing a Senior Honors Thesis should contact Dr. Diane Ciekawy for additional information.
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.
