Anthropology Minor

Derived from the Greek áíèñϖðïò (human being) and ëïãïò (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, the interests of a wide variety of students from diverse cultural and academic backgrounds can be satisfied with this minor.
