The Anthropology minor enhances a number of major programs (such as nursing, education, business, biology, communications, foreign languages and literatures, diplomacy and international relations), by offering a unique cross-cultural perspective that enables students to apply their skills in a multiethnic environment. Students are required to take six courses in anthropology. In the independent study (normally in the senior year), students write a research paper, integrating anthropological perspectives with their major field of study. Students completing a minor in anthropology must complete a minimum of 18 credits in anthropology to include:
Three Required Anthropology Courses (9 credits)
ANTH 1201 Introduction to Physical Anthropology
ANTH 1202 Introduction to Cultural Anthropology
ANTH 1210 Culture and Communication: Introduction to Linguistic Anthropology
ANTH 2912 Qualitative Field Research Methods
Three Elective Anthropology Courses (9 credits)
