Minor in Anthropology

About the Minor

The anthropology minor provides students in other fields with a cross-cultural awareness that will enable them to interact with a variety of people in a wide range of situations. By giving students a respect for and understanding of the basis of cultural variation, the minor can facilitate working in international settings. Even for students working within the United States, anthropology offers increased sensitivity to ethnic and population diversity. Medicine, law, counseling, nursing, and nutrition are only a few of the fields in which clients and professionals may come from different parts of our heterogeneous society.

Please note: No more than three courses that are required for a student’s major can count towards fulfilling requirements for the minor.
