Changes to the BA in 2020

Students are strongly encouraged to meet with a Q2S Advisor to plan out their course of study as a “Q” (quarter-system) completer, or an “S” (semester-system) completer, and to understand changes to the requirements for a BA in Anthropology in the semester-system. The advisor for the Department of Anthropology is Arianna Huhn ( / 909-537-5505 / SB-309).

The table below highlights differences between the current quarter-based system and the semester-based system. Students who began under the quarter-based system but will complete their course of study under the semester-based system will have their choice of whether to follow the old or new program requirements. For more information, please visit the Department of Anthropology private online advising community, accessible via Blackboard. If you are not a member of the community but you would like to be, please email to be enrolled.
