The Anthropology minor helps the student understand cultures throughout the world. The study of cross cultural issues is important for many fields, and anthropology has long been recognized as a leading discipline in the development of concepts and knowledge regarding culture, prehistory, evolution and linguistics. The Anthropology minor is an ideal complement to many majors, including history, psychology, sociology, political science, communications, economics, and business administration. Anthropology is an excellent background for those who wish to develop careers or have graduate education in policy, development, teaching, or other service professions.
The Anthropology minor consists of 15 credits, which must include ANT 106 (Introduction to Cultural Anthropology) and any twelve additional anthropology credits.
