Meet the Faculty

The anthropology minor exposes students to many related sub-disciplines of the field. Undergraduates take courses in cultural anthropology, biological anthropology, archaeology, and linguistics. The study of anthropology develops analytical and research skills necessary for understanding the complexities of the world’s cultures. It also prepares students for careers in business, law, government, and medicine. Because anthropology emphasizes field research, the department provides opportunities to visit and study other modern cultures, as well as to analyze fossils and archaeological materials. Anthropology encompasses many interests and approaches - from archaeology to primate behavior. Anthropology courses probe the biological basis of human society, cultural mores, social change, and the development of civilization.

Minor Requirements

Six (6) courses are required: the five (5) core courses required of the major and one (1) anthropology elective, which must be at the 300-400 level. At least five (5) courses must be taken within the Department of Anthropology at Rollins.
