Anthropology (Minor)

About the Program

Anthropology is the exploration of what it means to be human. The study of anthropology provides a broad-based approach to the understanding of human culture (past and present) and human biology. The anthropological perspective is global, holistic, and involves considerable time-depth. The minor exposes students to the primary subdivisions within the field: archaeology, cultural anthropology, folklore, linguistics, and physical anthropology. The minor in anthropology can complement all majors, for example in forensic science, social sciences, museum work, social services, education, government, and market research.
