Anthropology Minor

The anthropology minor allows students to explore a range of areas in anthropology or to concentrate in cultural/ethnographic studies or in applied/medical anthropology. The minor in anthropology requires eighteen credit hours, at least fifteen credit hours of which must be earned in classroom courses. (A sociology major completing the anthropology minor may apply only ANTH 130 Introduction to Sociocultural Anthropology or ANTH 240 Peoples of the World to both programs.)
