ANT 405 Senior Seminar in Anthropology

3 hours 

In the Senior Seminar, the culmination of the major in Anthropology, students focus on a contemporary social problem, examining the issue by means of the theories and methodologies of Anthropology. Students will independently integrate and synthesize the knowledge, understanding and techniques acquired in their studies of Anthropology into the production of a significant anthropological research project. Over the course of the semester, students will also design and conduct original research on a contemporary social issue (e.g., homelessness; migration; gentrification; sex work); a student may develop a project in conjunction with ongoing research in NYC under the direction of department faculty, a major resource for anthropology students at John Jay College.
