(18 semester hours)


The Anthropology Minor is designed to help students pursue their interests in human communication, biology, and culture, in the past and present, without fulfilling the full range of requirements for the major. Anthropology is the ideal complement to a number of majors and pre-professional degrees. Anthropological holism encourages critical thinking and interdisciplinarity, while the cross-cultural approach of anthropology will be of particular importance to those interested in adding global and pan-human perspectives to their major course of study.


A minimum 2.0 GPA is required for all courses in this minor. Courses must be taken for a grade (not credit/no-credit). Students planning to take this minor should consult with the chief departmental advisor. The archaeology minor is open to anthropology majors.
