Beyond the Major

Boise view

In its purest form, Beyond the Major represents a university-wide commitment to offering students organized experiences outside of the classroom so they can engage in deep, rich and workplace-connected activities beyond those required for a degree.

More than that, the Beyond the Major effort strives to help students develop a thread that connects their individual experiences into their own unique story – a story that not only aids in their self-identification as an emerging professional, but shows employers the value that their college education brings beyond the list of courses that goes with a specific degree.

The Anthropology Department faculty pride themselves in helping students achieve their academic and career goals.  Besides our one-on-one advising and mentoring, we offer students opportunities to go beyond the classroom through leadership, research, work, and cultural experiences.
