Choosing your program

Are you trying to decide which UTM Anthropology undergraduate program to enrol in? 

Anthropology is unique in that we offer both Arts (Social Science) and Science courses that can lead to an Honours Bachelor of Arts (HBA) or an Honours Bachelor of Science (HBSc) degree.

The following resources may help you with your decision when choosing your program:

Program vs. field of interest (or subfield)

What is the difference between a program and field of interest (or subfield)?

Program:

  • A program (or Subject POSt) is the Specialist (SP), Major (MA), or Minor (MI) you enrol in at the University of Toronto Mississauga.
  • These programs count toward Honours Bachelor of Arts (HBA) or Honours Bachelor of Science (HBSc) degrees.
  • You must fulfil program requirements in order to complete your program. Use Degree Explorer to help you stay on track.

Field of interest (or subfield):


Do I have to focus on a specific field of interest within my Anthropology undergraduate program?

No, you don't have to focus on a specific field of interest. You may choose upper-level courses for Generalist Anthropology, which will give you a broad grounding in the various fields (for maximum career flexibility).
