Anthropology Minor

Discover Humanity And Diversity

Anthropology’s goal is to explore and describe the nature of humans as evolving, cultural beings. It helps you become more than an intellectual tourist, isolated from others. Instead, you become eager and able to contribute to the rich diversity of the rapidly changing world. This minor is for students who wish to add an interesting and relevant program to their current major and who may wish to attend graduate school or seek employment in museums, forensic science labs, or cultural resource management.

Engaged Learning

Many Hands-on Learning Opportunities

Whether working on a field school excavation or doing ethnographic interviews or examining biological specimens in a lab, Anthropology provides many opportunities for engaged experiential learning. Click here to see the brochure for the Anthropology degree.

What Can I Do With An Anthropology Minor?

You can elevate your cultural literacy and diversity with an Anthropology minor by taking such cool courses as Anthropology of Food, Hoax and Myth in Anthropology, and Anthropology of the Middle East. Anthropology majors and minors go to graduate school in anthropology or seek employment in museums, forensic science labs, or cultural resources management.

Field-Based Experiences

You will participate in field-based experiences through study tours of England, Cuba, or the Middle East, field schools that involve excavations, and museum and archival internships.

Anthropology Out Of The Classroom

You can join our very active Anthropology Club, attend and give papers at academic conferences, take field trips, attend film festivals, and meet with Anthropology professionals active in the field.
