Anthropology Minor

Anthropology is the study of people and how they interact with each other and their environments. It is concerned with all institutions of all societies and is distinguished from other social science disciplines by its emphasis on differences in and between cultures. For a more detailed description of the program, faculty, facilities, academic and co-curricular opportunities please go to the Sociology website. Students interested in anthropology may  pursue a sociology major and choose a series of courses (as available) from the Anthropology Track options to focus in this area or may choose an Anthropology minor

Many students who are interested in anthropology find it desirable to combine it with a major in another department such as biology, classics, fine arts, history, psychology, political science, modern languages or communication studies. To provide for maximum flexibility of scheduling, students interested in dual majors should consult with a member of the department to arrange their individual schedules.
