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
