About the Anthropology Minor
The Anthropology Minor program at UCCS is designed to provide students with an interdisciplinary understanding of human cultural developments, history, and societies.
The program is divided into four main areas: archaeology, biological anthropology, cultural anthropology, and linguistic anthropology. Students in the Minor program will gain an introduction to three of the four and generally focus on one of the four through upper-division elective courses.
Focus of Study
Anthropology is an interdisciplinary field that explores human diversity in the past and present, utilizing a range of theoretical and methodological approaches. The program is divided into four main areas: archaeology, biological anthropology, cultural anthropology, and linguistic anthropology.
Students in the minor will gain a broad perspective on human cultural development and will specialize in one of the four subfields. The minor program also enhances student preparation for graduate studies in a variety of related academic fields and for careers in museums, public-facing organizations, the arts, business, and many other arenas.
