Anthropology Minor

Students in many other programs will find an anthropological perspective of benefit. The minor program is structured to allow the student maximum flexibility in course selection within a broadly defined progression of anthropological concerns. Thus, the student is able to tailor a minor in anthropology to best suit specific wants and needs in the context of an overall curriculum.

Minor Requirements

The minor in Anthropology consists of a minimum of 15 credit hours. Students will normally begin progress toward the minor by taking at least one course from the minor core, as these often serve as prerequisites for the electives. No more than seven (7) credit hours from the minor core will count to the minor.

Total Minor Credit Hours: 15

Minor Elective Credit Hours: 9-12

Any combination of 4000 level elective courses in Archaeology, Biological Anthropology and Cultural Anthropology can be chosen.

GPA Requirements

A 2.0 GPA is required for the minor.

Grading Requirements

A C (2.0) average is required for the minor.

Residency Requirement

Fifty percent (50%) of the minor must be completed through USF coursework.
