The Specialist Program in Socio-Cultural Anthropology is intended to provide the professionally oriented student with background preparation of sufficient breadth and depth to pursue specialized training at the graduate level. It is also designed to offer interested students a course structure as background for a wide range of occupations and professions. Students are encouraged to consult with the Undergraduate Counsellor regarding the selection of a course sequence appropriate to their interests and objectives. In exceptional circumstances, supervised research and reading courses are available at the C- and D-levels (ANTC03H3, ANTD31H3). These courses require special arrangements prior to registration. Read the descriptions for these courses carefully as restrictions apply.
