Students who plan to declare a Minor in Anthropology must complete the Consent to Complete a Minor Program form and submit it to their College Academic Advisor. Academic Advisors will review the minor requirements with students prior to students submitting the form.
Note: Courses cannot double count between majors and minors, so students need to have a
separate set of courses to fulfill their minor.
Minor Program Requirements
The minor in Anthropology consists of six courses. The requirements for the minor are:
ANTH 10100 Introduction to Anthropology 100
or ANTH 21107 Anthropological Theory
One Methods course from the following: 100
ANTH 21420 Ethnographic Methods
ANTH 28400 Bioarchaeology and Forensic Anthropology: Approaches to the Past
ANTH 29500 Archaeology Laboratory Practicum
an approved alternative in archaeological, linguistic, or biological anthropology
Four additional courses listed or cross-listed as ANTH 400
Total Units 600
Language courses do not fulfill the Anthropology minor requirements. Courses in the minor may not be double-counted with the student's major(s), other minors, or general education requirements. The department will not accept petitions for non-Anthropology courses.
