Anthropology Minor

The minor enables students to gain preparation and grounding in some particular facet of discipline, without fulfilling the full range of requirements of the major. The minor is a focused course of study. It may focus on one of the four subfields, the cultural past, and present in a specific region of the world or a topical specialty that cross-cuts the sub-fields.
