Cultural Anthropology Minor

The Cultural Anthropology minor introduces students to an holistic understanding of human diversity. By examining patterns of beliefs, values, behaviors, shared histories, and material realities, Cultural Anthropology focuses on what it means to be human. Our courses address relevant concerns such as food and nutrition; local and global identities; inter-cultural competence; urban, rural, and global economic development; and environmental sustainability. Through engaged field research methods, Cultural Anthropology recognizes culture as the primary means by which humans engage in social and environmental interactions to define meaningful and purposeful lives.
