Undergraduate Courses Taken Elsewhere
Courses taken outside the Department of Anthropology
At least six (6) of the courses used for UB major
credit must be UB Department of Anthropology courses. Students may petition the Undergraduate
Committee for acceptance of courses taken elsewhere, in other UB departments or in other colleges.
Normally anthropology courses taken elsewhere will be accepted. No more than 3 non-anthropology
courses will be accepted for UB Anthropology major credit. UB has articulation/transfer
arrangements with most colleges in NY State for their equivalents to our 106, 107, and 108. For any other
requests students must use the appropriate petition form, available in the Undergraduate Office,
and they must attach a copy of the syllabus of the course being petitioned.
Note: Even though the course may have been accepted in the past, the student should follow standard petition process. Students are encouraged to petition any UB courses that might satisfy our requirements. Several faculty members with anthropological training are employed in other departments and schools, and many courses taught by non-anthropologists have clear relevance to the socio-cultural and methodological issues studied by anthropology.
