Anthropology Minor

The anthropology minor provides students with a broad background in one of the most fascinating of social sciences - Anthropology, the scientific study of humanity. Required curriculum in the minor exposes students to all four sub-disciplines of anthropology - cultural anthropology, physical anthropology, archaeology, and linguistics – and students are able to flesh out the minor with a range of elective courses that satisfy their particular interests. Because anthropology is the study of human diversity around the world, students with a variety of majors take the anthropology minor to give them an international perspective on their specific fields, including public health, biology, exercise and sports science, women's, gender and sexuality studies, english, modern languages, archaeology, sociology, political science, marketing, and business.Pairing these majors with an anthropology minor helps students gain a competitive edge in our increasingly global world.
