Anthropology is the scientific study of a broad range of human activities. The minor introduces you to cross-cultural variations in values, worldviews and ways of life. It explores topics such as religion, art, kinship, gender roles, communication styles and body modifications. The minor, which is open to all students, often is paired with biology, history, psychology and sociology.
