Bachelor of Science in Anthropology

St. Thomas University

Anthropology is unique in being a hands-on field of study. Anthropology can be done wherever people are, and wherever people were.

Anthropology is unique in being a hands-on field of study. Anthropology can be done wherever people are, and wherever people were. As a student of Anthropology at St. Thomas, you can expect to get out there in the real world, interacting with people in a variety of social contexts, excavating artifacts, and analyzing bones in our anthropology laboratory. Cultural anthropologists, social anthropologists, and linguists typically spend years living with particular groups of people, participating in their everyday lives. This process of long-term, small-scale, intensive and detailed study allows them to understand some of the most fundamental aspects of human existence which only reveal themselves in this way. Archaeologists also conduct long-term fieldwork examining human material culture, excavating, documenting, and analyzing artifacts as a means of answering the same questions about human existence. Physical anthropologists study human skeletal remains not only to understand our physical past and development, but also in modern-day criminal forensic investigations. CRITICAL & TRANSFERABLE SKILLS Living and working in today’s world increasingly means interacting with people from many different cultural backgrounds. The skills developed through completing a degree in Anthropology enables graduates to become critical thinkers and effective communicators who are able to generate relevant information and make informed decisions. According to the American Anthropological Association, anthropological training concentrates on three transferable skill areas: “understanding human diversity, building research skills for collecting and making sense of information, and communicating effectively.” COMMON CAREERS AND GRADUATE PATHWAYS Studying Anthropology can open doors to positions in research institutions, non-profit associations, museums, government agencies, educational institutions, world organizations, and private corporations. Anthropologists may work anywhere where there is a need to manage, evaluate and interpret data on human behaviour. If you are creative, a background in Anthropology can be an asset in documentary fi lm or the music industry. The ethnographic research skills learned in Anthropology are even used in areas of market and consumer research, and anthropologists work for some of the world’s largest advertising firms, as well as other large corporate organizations. RELATED AREAS OF STUDY As a holistic discipline, focusing on interrelationships, Anthropology has direct links to several of the sciences and humanities, such as History, Psychology, Sociology, Economics, Geography, Philosophy, Biology, Ecology, Literary Studies, Music, Religion, Political Science, Languages. Since Anthropology overlaps in important ways with virtually every other discipline represented at St. Thomas, our discipline may form an ideal double-major with another discipline. Honours in Anthropology To gain entry to the honours programme, students must have a minimum 3.5 grade point average for all university courses. To earn an honours degree, students must obtain a minimum 3.5 grade point average on forty-eight credit hours in Anthropology courses, including the required courses, and a minimum B grade on the honours thesis (ANTH-4666). Students intending to complete the honours programme in Anthropology must consult a faculty advisor and present an application to the Department of Anthropology no later than the last day of February of the year preceding the anticipated graduation date. Students wishing to pursue the honours programme are required to complete a minimum of 48 credit hours in Anthropology, including all of the following required courses: - ANTH-1013. Introduction to Cultural Anthropology - ANTH-1023. Introduction to Physical Anthropology - One archaeology course at the 2000 level - Two area ethnography courses - ANTH-3806. Readings in Anthropological Theory - ANTH-3913. Introduction to Qualitative Research Methods - ANTH-4003. Issues in Anthropology - ANTH-4666. Honours Thesis Major in Anthropology Majors must meet with their department chair to declare their Anthropology major. Students majoring in Anthropology are required to complete a minimum of 36 credit hours in Anthropology, including all of the following required courses: - ANTH-1013. Introduction to Cultural Anthropology - ANTH-1023. Introduction to Physical Anthropology - One archaeology course at the 2000 level - Two area ethnography courses - ANTH-3806. Readings in Anthropological Theory - ANTH-3913. Introduction to Qualitative Research Methods - ANTH-4003. Issues in Anthropology Minor in Anthropology Students minoring in Anthropology are required to complete a minimum of 18 credit hours in Anthropology, including all of the following: - ANTH-1013. Introduction to Cultural Anthropology - ANTH-1023. Introduction to Physical Anthropology - One area ethnography course Minor in Forensic Anthropology Forensic Anthropology intersects with both anthropological and forensic studies. It is a specialty within the subdiscipline of physical anthropology and, because it deals with the analysis of human skeletal remains in a medico-legal context, it has applications for forensic science. Prospective students are advised that ANTH-1023 is not a prerequisite for any of the required courses; that the required courses are to be taken in the order listed, with each a prerequisite of the subsequent course; and that ANTH-4443 has an enrolment limit of 25 with admission requiring permission of the instructor.

The programs culminate in a capstone sequence, allowing students to focus on independent projects involving research or applied internships. Vision We will be an international leader in marine science education and research. Our kuleana (responsibility and privilege) is to provide student-focused, transformative, authentic science experiences, drawing from the unique natural and cultural environment of Hawai‘i. Our graduates will be broadly equipped to become innovative members of the global workforce, successful life-long learners, and engaged stewards of the marine environment. Faculty, staff, and students will collaborate and draw upon each other’s strengths and diversity to achieve our shared vision of student success. Mission The marine science program at UH Hilo inspires and enlightens all learners about the ocean through interactive hands-on learning, research involvement, and community outreach centered on the natural and cultural environment of Hawai‘i Island. This is supported by a broad background in the marine sciences, including fundamental knowledge of biology, chemistry, physics, geology, and mathematics. B.S. in Marine Science Requirements Group 1. General Education Basic, Area, and Integrative Requirements Students may choose to graduate under the General Education Basic, Area, and Integrative requirements and graduation requirements in force at the time they entered the UH System, when they entered UH Hilo, or when they graduate, provided there is no break in enrollment. Students should meet with their academic advisor to ensure that they enroll in courses that will enable them to meet these requirements as well as requirements for the major and for graduation. Some courses may meet both General Education requirements and major requirements. The new GE basic, core, and integrative requirements and lists of certified courses are posted on the General Education website. Group 2.

Notes Students must earn a minimum grade of “C-” in all required courses and prerequisite courses. 9 credits are required at the 300- or 400-level for graduation with a B.S. degree in Marine Science. To earn a Bachelor of Arts degree in Marine Science, students must fulfill the requirements for the major and meet all of the University’s other baccalaureate degree requirements. Students wishing to make timely progress toward graduation are urged to pay careful attention to all degree requirements. In addition, when planning a schedule of courses, it is imperative to be aware of course prerequisites and the frequency with which courses are offered. This information is available in the course listings in this Catalog. To ensure progress toward degree completion, students are urged to meet with an advisor each semester before registering. [-]
