Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: College of Arts and Sciences

The Anthropology minor begins with the powerful idea that human behavior can only be fully understood when it is seen in the context of humanity as a whole – the totality and diversity of human life and experience across the globe. This means adopting a holistic and cross-cultural perspective.

Program Learning Outcomes


  • Develop an understanding of core concepts in anthropology including, but not limited to, culture, holism, ethnocentrism, and cultural relativity
  • Develop a familiarity with anthropological methods, notably participant observation and interviewing, and other research strategies and tools used to collect ethnographic data
  • Develop an understanding of ethical behavior in social science research

Minor Requirements (20 units)


The minor consists of two required courses and three electives. Two electives must be in anthropology; the third elective can be in anthropology or chosen from a list of appropriate courses in a variety of disciplines.
