The Application to Graduate is quite straight forward and easy to complete. Under “Major” you should write Anthropology or Behavioral Science or Behavioral Science/ANTH or Behavioral Science/PSYC or Behavioral Science/SOCI. Only use the Double Major line if you are completing two completely separate degrees, such as anthropology and biology. Print out a hard copy of the completed Application to Graduate, sign and date it, and submit it to the front desk in the Department of Anthropology office (Clark Hall 469).

All the information you need to complete your major form is on your major Progress-To-Degree Tracker. Carefully complete the major form, save it, and send it as an email attachment to anthropology-advisor@sjsu.edu. The subject of your email should be the name of your major form file (for example smith_diana_major). The department will only accept major forms that are submitted in this way and incorrect or incomplete forms will be returned to students, possibly delaying their graduation.

3. You will be notified by email when your major form is approved. The major form and application to graduate will be left for you in the student pickup rack outside Clark Hall 469. Take the envelope to Window R in Student Services and file your application.

4. If you do not complete a course listed on the major form you will have to complete a course substitution form. See the FAQ section on this website for instructions about completing the form.
