Minor in Anthropology:

The minor in Anthropology provides students with a brief overview of the human condition. Anthropologists view humans holistically-biologically, socially, and culturally. The study of anthropology is beneficial to students who consider careers in medicine, law, international relations, social work, education, health, gerontology, the arts, and numerous other careers.

For students majoring in another field, a minor in Anthropology shall consist of a minimum of 15 credits in upper-division anthropology courses, earned in any five courses at the 3000 level or above.  A minimum of 12 credits must be taken in residence at FAU.  A grade of “C” or better is required for a course in anthropology to count toward the minor.
