Minor in Anthropology

The election of a minor in anthropology is appropriate for students in a variety of disciplines who wish to add a comparative, cross-cultural, or bio-cultural perspective on the study of human beings to their area of specialization.

In order for students to gain maximum benefit from their minor in conjunction with their major, it is strongly recommended that you consult with an advisor in the department before selecting courses. A list of elective anthropology courses recommended for combination with a variety of majors is available from the department. A minor can help you market yourself to employers after graduation because it gives you valuable skills in areas outside of your major. Many jobs require specialized instruction that is not encompassed in your major alone, like proficiency in a second language, accounting concepts or the understanding of different populations that sociology, anthropology or psychology gives you.
