Minor in Anthropology

About the Minor

In today’s globalized marketplace, Anthropology, the study of human cultural and biological diversity, is more vital than ever. Fields as varied as medicine, law, government, and business, make use of the insights of anthropologists to reach and communicate with a broad audience. The anthropology minor provides students with a cross-cultural awareness and understanding that will give them an edge up no matter what field they go into. It challenges them to think beyond their own experience and imagine the perspectives of other people and other societies. Anthropology minors graduate as cosmopolitan and engaged global citizens, with in-demand skills in researching, and making sense of, diverse human behavior. 

All prospective students should meet with an advisor from the College as soon as possible.
