Anthropology is the comparative study of human thought, experience, and behavior in all of its complexity and diversity. The anthropological perspective is crucial for navigating an increasingly global world. The Anthropology minor is part of the Anthropology/Sociology Program, housed in the Department of Social Inquiry. The minor is designed to complement a wide array of majors and is supported by faculty in a range of disciplines.
- Cultivate awareness and analysis of the role of "culture" in one's own and others worldviews, practices, identities, and lived experience.
- 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.
- Use appropriate research methods, including observation and interviews, to study culture and social life.
- 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.
