Objectives

Anthropology offers an academic minor. Anthropology courses may also be taken as part of the social science major and selected courses are accepted in other majors asnd minors such as education, political studies, psychology, sociology, honors, and environmental studies. The discipline is a social science that looks at human behavior cross-culturally in its sub-fields of socio-cultural anthropology, linguistic anthropology, archeology, and physical anthropology. Concerned with both modern and prehistoric humans, the study of anthropology links the hard and soft sciences through the holistic study of our evolving cultural and biological species.
