Application for Admission

Progression into the Anthropology major is based on performance in the three prerequisite courses: 110 or 117, 120 or 127 and 130 or 137. You must maintain at least a 3.0 GPA for these three courses, with none of the three grades below a C. Upon satisfactory completion of the prerequisites, you may apply for progression into the Anthropology major by: 1) completing this application and 2) having a copy of your academic history (verifying satisfactory completion of the progression requirements) delivered to the Department. To access your academic history online go to Banner’s “UTK Student Academic Links” and click on “View Your Academic History.” The Undergraduate Committee of the Anthropology Department will notify you in writing of the status of your application.   Upon progression to the major, a departmental advisor will be assigned in consultation with you.

  • How to calculate your GPA:

    If, for example, you earned a C+ in ANTH 110, a B in 120 and an A in 130: C+ = 2.5, B= 3.0, A=4.0
    Therefore 2.5 + 3.0 + 4.0 = 9.5
    9.5/3 = 3.17 = your GPA
