Anthropology, Minor


Through the anthropology curriculum, students will gain skills and experiences in the classroom with real-world application, regardless of career path. Anthropology majors and minors begin the program by taking Introduction to Anthropology, which explores the fundamentals of human evolution, the culture concept and cultural diversity. Each student then designs a complete anthropological curriculum around a specific area of focus (e.g., sociocultural, archaeological, evolutionary, applied) over a period of individualized advisement by taking courses across a range of disciplines. This interdisciplinary degree is designed to enrich students’ lives and prepare them for successful careers after graduation.

To access Minor Requirements, please view the Curriculum Guide tab.
