Admission to the Major

Prospective students wishing to enter the BA (Social and Cultural Anthropology, or Archaeology), the BA (Development Studies), or the BSc (Anthropology or Archaeology) Program must meet the criteria listed in section A.2 Undergraduate Admission of this Calendar.

Admission to Honours

Honours programs in Anthropology, Archaeology and Development Studies offer senior students the opportunity to participate in more inquiry-based studies than those undertaken by Majors. Entrance occurs after completion of at least 75 units (12.5 full-course equivalents). The Anthropology and Archaeology Honours programs both permit students to select either an Honours BA, or an Honours BSc.

The Faculty of Arts procedures for Admission to Honours established in section 3.4.2 Honours Degrees with a Major Field are applicable and provide the overall framework. The application deadline is February 1.
