Anthropology Minor

The minor in anthropology provides students in other fields with a framework to pursue a particular focus within the discipline. Such a focus might be within a subfield of anthropology (e.g., biological anthropology, archaeology, cultural anthropology, linguistic anthropology), in area studies (e.g., Africa, the Middle East, the United States), or in a specific topic (e.g., ethnicity, gender, the origins of the state, urban studies). The minor combines 2 200-level courses and 4 300-level courses that constitute a coherent focus.

Students pursuing the minor should consult with the department’s undergraduate adviser to establish a program.
