Minor - Anthropology

An anthropology minor complements any career in which understanding human behavior is important. It is especially relevant to business majors and pre-professional students preparing for careers in law, medicine, or social work. Anthropology minors learn many useful skills including cultural competency, critical thinking, research design, and professional writing skills that are increasing in demand in private public, and non-profit organizations. Many students minor in anthropology simply because they find that learning about the human species is interesting and enjoyable.
