Anthropology Minor

Develop an expertise in the study of human cultures and their physical and social environments with a minor in Anthropology. The program is founded upon four major fields: sociocultural anthropology, linguistic anthropology, physical anthropology, and archaeology. You will gain a breadth of knowledge about human cultures and their physical and social environments and an understanding of the diversity of human historical and contemporary experience. In addition, the program encourages students to consider international study as a supplement to their classroom and research experience.
