The Anthropology minor is an interdisciplinary inquiry of the nature and meaning of the concept of culture. It is housed in the Department of Social Inquiry and is a component of the Anthropology/Sociology Program. The Anthropology minor supports the liberal arts mission of the university and seeks to help students be life-long learners by applying the skills of reflective judgment and community responsibility. The Anthropology minor is designed to complement a wide array of majors.
- Demonstrate a critical, historically informed understanding of anthropological inquiry, including concepts, theories, and methods that have been used to study human experience in all its variety.
- Propose and conduct anthropological research using participant-observation, interviews, textual analysis, and other methods, as appropriate.
- Identify and address ethical issues in research and representation, in both one's own and others' work.
- Cultivate awareness and analysis of the role of "culture" in one's own and others' worldviews, practices, identities, and lived experience.
- Engage with diverse people, perspectives, and practices in an open-minded, empathetic, and self-reflective manner.
- Integrate questions, evidence, and interpretation effectively in written and oral presentations.
