Academic Program Guide


ACADEMIC MAP (Effective Summer 2022 and after)

This map is a term-by-term sample course schedule. The milestones listed to the right of each term are designed to keep you on course to graduate in four years. The Sample Schedule serves as a general guideline to help you build a full schedule each term. The General Education and Elective courses must be selected to satisfy all area and multicultural requirements unless your program meets these requirements with major courses. Milestones are courses and special requirements necessary for timely progress to complete a major. Missing milestones will result in one of two types of map registration stops. The first level (Degree Map Offtrack) is placed following grade posting if the student has missed a milestone (course and/or GPA) for the first time in the major. If a student is in non-compliance with milestones for two (2) consecutive semesters (excluding summers), a Major Change Required stop is placed on the student's registration.

Anthropology is the scientific study of humankind in relation to origin, physical characteristics, distribution, customs, languages, and social and religious practices and beliefs. Both biological and cultural factors are examined as a basis for a better understanding of human history and behavior.
