Anthropology

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.

The minor consists of two required introductory courses and three electives, one of which can be chosen from a broad range of courses in communication studies, history, media studies, music, psychology, theology and religion, and sociology.
