Anthropology Minor

A minor in anthropology gives context to a variety of majors including business, marketing, and others.


Students can earn a minor in Anthropology to complement a major in another field. The minor consists of 19 semester hours (6 courses), including one course in each of the three anthropology subfields (Archaeology, Cultural, and Biological Anthropology). Students majoring in fields such as History, Criminal Justice, Social Work, and International Studies often minor in Anthropology.

This minor is an asset on the job market because of students' exposure to understanding other cultures and their ways of life, the range of cultures in the world both past and present, and how human culture developed and spread. Business and governments are all involved in globalization and multicultural endeavors, and a minor in Anthropology looks good on the résumés of graduates.
