For the minor in anthropology, students are required to complete 9 credits (3 courses) of graduate-level anthropology coursework. A minor in anthropology provides a useful concentration for students developing professional careers in teaching, environmental sciences, international business, community development, social work, art, and historic preservation. We recommend that students consult the anthropology graduate advisor and focus their coursework in the appropriate subfield.
A candidate for a Master’s degree may select up to two minors in addition to the major. (See “Graduate Degree Programs, Specializations/Concentrations, and Approved Minors” for a list of approved minors.)
To record a minor on a student’s transcript, the minor must be listed on the “Application for Admission to Candidacy,” and this form must be signed by the anthropology graduate advisor. Graduate students majoring in anthropology may not also earn a minor in the same field.
