KU Anthropology: Undergraduate Programs

A minor in Anthropology allows students outside the department to obtain a strong, distributed background in the discipline. It is particularly useful for students anticipating careers any career in which a basic understanding of the human experience (i.e. variation and practices) is relevant. There are two options available in pursuing a minor in Anthropology. Students should meet with a department academic advisor early in the junior year to discuss which option will be most beneficial.
