Major in Anthropology

Indiana University Northwest offers a joint B.A. Major in Anthropology in conjunction with Indiana University South Bend. The required classes are taught at both schools, so students can complete entirely at either campus. There is no requirement that students must take classes at both schools. At the same time, the faculty of each campus do have different specializations and offer different elective courses. Additionally the required classes may be offered in different semesters at the campuses. Students are free to take classes at both schools and apply them to the major.
