Fall 1996 Advisement Information 
for Spring 1997
from the Anthropology Departmental Newsletter

By Kenneth Ackerman

Advisement for the Spring 1997 semester runs 21 November 1996 to December 6th. As of the 19th of November, schedules are available to students. Freshmen are required to have an advisement signature in order to register; upperclass women and men are strongly encouraged to come for advisement in order to maintain an ongoing record of courses taken to fulfill department, college, and university requirements. You might also get some useful advice!

A signup schedule for advisement is posted on the bulletin board outside my office door (310 Ewing). Each advisee is allocated one half hour -- if you are certain that you will need more time than that you are invited to sign up for two adjacent half hour periods. Advisees are asked to sign up 24 hours in advance of their appointments in order to assure that the advisor will be present. Students planning to satisfy a tutorial requirement are asked to notify me even if they do not intend otherwise to seek advisement. This can be done by leaving a message at my office or in the department office.

Majors who have completed most of the department requirements are reminded of the possibility of taking ANTH 475, the teaching of anthropology, within the context of one of the department's 100 level (occasionally 200 level) introductory courses. Permission of the teacher is required and, except in unusual circumstances, the applicant should have maintained a GPA above 3.00 in order to qualify. Most members of the faculty are pleased to consider such applications.

Students occasionally ask -- understandably -- which of the courses offered by the department satisfy the requirements for social and cultural (12 credits), biological (6 credits), and archaeology (6 credits). These courses are as follows:

SOCIAL AND CULTURAL COURSES: ANTH 101, 205, 216, 222, 225, 227, 228, 229, 230, 231, 239, 251, 255, 259, 260, 261, 265, 325, 327, 330, 333, 337, 338, 360, 363, 368, 370, 375, 377, 451, 457, 465.

ARCHAEOLOGY: ANTH 103, 104 (if not used for biological; may not be taken if 102 and/or 103 have been taken), 105, 216, 269, 275, 278, 320, 322, 323, 324, 340, 342, 345, 379, 410, 424, 428, 463.

BIOLOGICAL: ANTH 102, 104 (if not used for archaeology; may not be taken if 102 and/or 103 have been taken), 202, 300, 305, 401, 402, 404.
