  • Practical experience
    Students in the final year of a BA Honours (Anthropology) may obtain departmental permission to enrol in a half credit field placement (ANTH 4000). This is a unique opportunity to gain research experience in a professional research setting such as Statistics Canada, the Canadian Museum of Civilization, or an international development organization based in Ottawa. Instead of attending classes, you will spend up to one day a week working in an organization.

  • Course description
    The BA (Honours) program provides an intensive and in-depth program of study over a period of four years. At least 9.0 of your credits must be in Anthropology.  Honours programs can be combined with other disciplines for a Combined Bachelor of Arts (BA) (Honours) degree. Students must complete 7.0 credits in either Anthropology and fulfill the requirements for the other discipline. In addition, students not majoring in Anthropology may pursue a minor in Anthropology. A minor usually requires 4.0 credits in that discipline.

    In the Anthropology (Honours) program, required courses include Introduction to Anthropology (ANTH 1001) and Introduction to Issues in Anthropology (ANTH 1002) or Introduction to Anthropological Perspectives (ANTH 1003); Foundations in Socio-Cultural Anthropology (ANTH 2001); any two courses in our ethnographic area series (ANTH 2610-2690); and any two of Ethnographic Research Methods (ANTH 3005), Contemporary Theories in Anthropology (ANTH 3006), and History of Anthropological Theory (ANTH 3007). Your BA Honours degree is capped off with Honours Research Paper in Anthropology (ANTH 4900) where you demonstrate your anthropological knowledge and analytical skills in a major research essay on a topic of your choice.
