Anthropology 490 - Fall 2020

This course level is typically taken by seniors and advanced juniors. The expectations of a 400-level directed research project will be quite high, and may be viewed as comparable to an undergraduate honors thesis for students who are either not eligible for honors or choose not to do honors. Student participation will include contributing independent ideas and designing a research project/small project under the supervision of the faculty mentor. The student should demonstrate mastery of the research techniques of a lab, independence, and a high degree of competency with a relevant literature. May be taken for 1-3 credit hours, 1-2 recommended. Students must enroll in a specific section with a faculty member and receive approval from the department.
