Anthropology Minor

“The information contained on this website is for informational purposes only.  The Undergraduate Record and Graduate Record represent the official repository for academic program requirements. These publications may be found at http://records.ureg.virginia.edu/index.php.” 

Students from many other majors often wish to minor in anthropology. Courses taken in other disciplines may not count toward a minor. A maximum of one anthropology course taken at another institution may count toward the minor, including study-abroad programs, if approved by a minor advisor.

The requirements for an Anthropology Minor include:

  • six three-credit courses
  • one course in each of the three areas of anthropology: socio-cultural anthropology, archaeology, and linguistics
  • at least one course in anthropology that fulfills the major's Beyond-the-West perspectives requirement. There are no requirements as to level.
