Plan of Study
Students must complete 20 credit hours of approved coursework to complete the anthropology minor. Many courses can be used as electives in a variety of majors, or selected as an alternative to WCore classes.
This course focuses on the different ways in which cultures adapt to the conditions of their environment. In this class, you will examine cultural modification through topics such as economic and political systems, religious beliefs, gender distinctions, and more.
Human Evolution and Archaeology
Explore the prehistory and evolutionary development of our species through the study of the sub-fields of anthropology: archaeology, primatology, paleoanthropology, and the study of material remains. At the same time, learn how different forms and behaviors are the product of physical, biotic, and social environments.
