Students completing an anthropology degree are awarded a BA degree or a BA degree with Honors in Anthropology. The undergraduate program is designed to help students develop an appreciation of other cultures and other world views and to gain an understanding of how and why the diversity in human culture and biology came about. Anthropology is an exciting and broad-ranging discipline. The undergraduate curriculum requirements ensure a common foundation of understanding but allow for great flexibility for specialized training. This is described in the graphic below and in complete detail in the MU Catalog. The BA requirements changed for the 2020-21 academic year. Requirements prior to Fall 2020 are described in archived catalogs. Students should follow the requirements for the academic year they started at Mizzou. A graduation plan worksheet for students who started prior to Fall 2020 is still available (pdf).
