The anthropology minor is designed to allow you to combine a generalized sequence of courses into a program. An anthropology minor broadens your major field of study by exposing you to the diverse ways of life of people around the globe. Students who complete the anthropology minor have a greater knowledge of the theories, concepts and methods used by anthropologists in the study of human cultures, past and present. A minor in anthropology is excellent preparation for further study in any field that requires the abilities to understand and engage with people from other cultures (including teaching, medicine, pharmacy, dentistry, business, law and counseling).

Students must complete a minimum of 20 units and five courses with a minimum grade point average of 2.0 in order to earn a minor in anthropology,

Note: 1) At least two courses must be taken at Pacific as specified below.
