Students are urged to confer with a department adviser to plan a minor. To declare a minor, students must file a completed declaration form with a current copy of their transcript.
Minor in Sociology
Undergraduate students can complete an 18-credit minor in Sociology. Course work must include the introductory course, SOCIOL 101, and at least 9 credits at the upper-division (300 or 400) level. Where courses are cross-listed in the major and minor, only 3 credit hours can be applied to both. A minimum grade of C- in SOCIOL 101 and a minimum overall GPA of 2.0 in the minor must be attained. No more than 6 of the 18 credits may be transferred from another institution.
Minor in Anthropology
Anthropology is a holistic and cross-culturally comparative science that is uniquely qualified to prepare students for multicultural work and social environments in the U.S. and abroad. Careers for Anthropologists, however, lie in all areas of human interaction. Anthropologists are especially attractive to companies and government agencies that work with and for national minorities and in foreign countries.
Students will be introduced to the subject and methods of cultural anthropology, examining its foundations and current trends in theory and applications. Students earning a minor in Anthropology take 6 credit hours of required coursework (ANTHRO 103, Introduction to Cultural Anthropology) and 15 credit hours of elective courses, which result in a total of 18 hours. Electives can be planned around an area of specialization. At least 9 of the 18 credit hours must be in courses at the 300- or 400-level. Where courses are cross-listed in the major and minor, only 6 credit hours can be applied to both. Students should consult with the program coordinator to select the appropriate courses. A minimum grade of C in ANTHRO 103 and a minimum overall GPA of 2.0 in the minor must be attained. No more than 6 of the 18 credits may be transferred from another institution.
