Anthropology at St. Mary’s

What is Anthropology?

A minor in Anthropology offers a holistic, cross-cultural study of humans and is of particular interest to students considering a career in anthropology or archaeology, like cultural resource management, museum studies, social science research, social land public policy, planning and government administration.

The minor prepares students to examine how ideas about cultures have evolved over time and how anthropology analyzes cultural diversity and change.

Anthropology Classes

Anthropology coursework engages students in critical cultural thinking about pressing social and global issues, and adds depth to any major through core skills in cultural interpretation and analysis, ethnographic methods, writing and communication.
