In general, very few bachelor’s degrees in anthropology have specific science requirements. However, if the interest is primarily archaeological, then geology would fulfill lab requirements. If the interest is primarily in biological anthropology, then it is recommended to select the biology sequence or the human anatomy and physiology sequence.
In choosing electives, consider two years of a world language since many bachelor of art degrees (including many anthropology programs) require two years or equivalent of a world language. Some anthropology degrees may also require an upper-division statistics course. Taking MTH 243 Introduction to Probability and Statistics I and MTH 244 Introduction to Probability and Statistics 2 is good preparation for the upper-division requirement. Either of these could count toward the non-lab requirement in the science/math/computer science general education requirement.
