The Anthropology minor introduces students to the traditional four-field approach to the study of culture. While the introduction course covers all four fields with a focus on cultural anthropology, students select courses from two of the other three theoretical fields (physical anthropology, archaeology, linguistics) and choose three electives to examine issues in anthropology such as the study of religion and/or specific cultures and/or a particular region of the world (i.e. Africa, Asia, Latin America, or Native America).
