What You’ll Learn
Human behavior — what is it? Why and how does it vary so much across the planet and through time? Whether through ethnographic fieldwork, archaeological excavation, biological lab work, or visual and material cultural analysis, our students and faculty collaborate closely to better prepare students to address the problems of the 21st century.A minor in anthropology could take you anywhere and add depth to your major —literally you could work on an archaeological excavation in Petra, Jordan, study food and culture in Greece or choose to explore a number of other hands-on opportunities.
"Anthropological knowledge can help with jobs, other classes, but also socially. You learn how to be open-minded, accept other cultures more readily, and examine things from all possible angles. I really wanted to open myself up to new experiences and think outside the box and this was the perfect major for me to start doing just that."Shauna Strnad ‘13
