Anthropology

Minor in Anthropology - 5 units

Derived from the Greek anthropos (human) and logos (expression), anthropology is the study of what it means to be human. It touches on the fields of sociology, biology, evolution, environmental science, economics, ethnic studies, history, religious studies, philosophy, communications, art, geography, linguistics, and political science. Because the field of anthropology is so broad, students from all backgrounds and various interests can find something they want with this minor. Plus, the skills that anthropology minors develop are extremely beneficial to students in their careers and for postgraduate studies in many disciplines.
