The Anthropology minor requires the student to take 18 or more credits (about six classes) of their choice in Anthropology. They may focus on one of the four sub-fields (Cultural Anthropology, Linguistic Anthropology, Biological Anthropology or Archaeology) or take a variety of courses from the subfields. It is suggested they take start with one or more of our core classes: ANTH 200 – Cultural Anthropology, ANTH 235 – Principles of Archaeology, ANTH 265 – Human Biology and/or ANTH 276 – The Nature of Language.
The Anthropology minor has very simple requirements:
1) It requires a 2.0 GPA to enter the minor and to graduate from it
2) At least one course must be taken at the UA (to get GPA)
3) It requires taking 18 Anthropology credits (about 6 ANTH classes)
4) It requires 9 of the 18 credits (about 3 classes) to be upper division anthropology courses (courses numbered ANTH 300-499). You can take more than 9 credits of upper division units, but not less.
No Tier One classes (any class numbered 150, 160 or 170) can be applied to the Anthropology minor.
A student can have their academic advisor declare an Anthropology minor or they may write to the Anthropology advisor and request she declare a minor for them.
Anthropology minor classes cannot be double dipped with any academic major (unless undertaking a double degree program). Up to 6 credits can be double dipped with Tier 2 courses.
