Anthropology Minor (ANTH)

Contacts: Abington College, Michael Bernstein, mjb70@psu.edu; College of the Liberal Arts, Timothy Ryan, tmr21@psu.edu

The Anthropology minor is designed to provide undergraduate students with exposure to the range of human variation across time and space. Our minors enroll in courses that explore that variation through the subdisciplines of archaeological, biological, and cultural anthropology. We maintain laboratory facilities in all three subdisciplines and the Matson Museum of Anthropology, all excellent learning facilities for our students. In addition, the department offers summer field school opportunities in cultural anthropology and archaeology. A Minor in Anthropology is excellent preparation for further study in any discipline that requires ability to understand and deal with other cultures, for example, teaching, counseling, business, medicine, law, or communications.

A grade of C or better is required for all courses in the minor.
