Undergraduate FAQ

Can I still meet with someone in the department for advising?

Yes. The best way to reach Dr. Moore is via email, and you can also schedule a phone call or virtual meeting by emailing her. You can reach Ruth by phone or email, Monday-Friday 8am-4pm ET (no appointment necessary.) 

Can I still declare an anthropology major or minor? 

Yes. Contact Ruth and Dr. Moore and we'll set up a virtual major or minor declaration with you.

Will there still be a department graduation event?

Since the University is doing Commencement remotely for spring 2020, there will be no in-person departmental graduation event. We are sad and disappointed that we won't be able to celebrate our graduating students in the usual manner, but our hope is to mark the occasion some other way. More details to come.

Have there been changes to any undergraduate deadlines?

  • The Undergraduate Reseach Fellowship deadline has been extended until April 17, 2020 (5:00pm.)

  • The senior thesis prize has been suspended for 2020. There is no senior thesis prize deadline, so senior theses are due to the department Friday, April 24, 2020 (5:00pm.) (See Senior Thesis Page.)
