Anthropology Minor

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Colleges, Departments, and Programs

A student may request entrance to the minor program in anthropology after completing at least 54 credits with a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 and at least a 2.5 grade point average in his/her major. Requests must be approved by the Chair of the Sociology and Anthropology Department.

It is possible to have both a major and a minor in the Department: e.g., a major in Sociology with a minor in Anthropology. Courses used to meet requirements for the minor may not be used to meet requirements of the major. Students with majors outside the College of Arts & Sciences may complete a minor without meeting the CAS distribution requirements. Courses counting for the minor must be completed with a C- or higher.

A minor must be completed at the time of the degree and will be so noted on the student’s transcript.  A student cannot be readmitted to the University to complete only a minor.


The minor in Anthropology requires completion of at least 18 credits, of which 9 must be at the upper division level.


Three (3) credits required.

Note: Sociology majors may not use the same Introduction course for both major and minor.
