Anthropology Minor

Students earning a minor in anthropology will have the skills to thrive in today’s global economy. Anthropology courses teach students to research, manage, analyze, evaluate and interpret data on human diversity across  all human behaviors— skills employers value highly and which translate to a variety of fields.  

Appreciation of cultural and biological diversity is crucial in a growing multicultural society. Students receive training through an interdisciplinary approach to anthropological archaeology, as well as cultural, linguistic and biological anthropology. Minor students may participate in research and fieldwork locally and abroad.
