Anthropology Minor


Return to Programs Return to: Programs

Anthropology is the study of the origins, development, and cultures of the human species. Cultural anthropology studies the full range of human societies—from tribal to complex modern societies. These studies are approached from a cultural perspective involving a community’s body of shared knowledge and understanding about the world. The anthropological perspective is multidisciplinary, comparative, holistic, and historical evolutionary.

Anthropology courses are listed under the course code STSS in the Course Descriptions section of this catalog. The following courses are those that the undergraduate director has approved for credit toward the anthropology minor.
