Expand your studies by taking a minor in anthropology or a minor in forensic anthropology.

Minor in Anthropology

An anthropology minor is an excellent option if you are strongly committed to another major but you want to include anthropology courses in your curriculum. Since anthropology can effectively complement many majors, contact our department for guidance in planning a successful minor in anthropology.

The forensic anthropology minor emphasizes forensic archaeological recovery and documentation, forensic osteology and pathology—all taught within the context of the cross-cultural perspective of anthropology. The minor is a grouping of both basic and upper-division courses in forensic anthropology, providing an adequate undergraduate specialization in this area of study.
