SAINT LOUIS UNIVERSITY THE COLLEGE OF ARTS AND SCIENCES DEPARMENT OF SOCIOLOGY AND ANTHROPOLOGY The Minor in Anthropology What is Anthropology? Anthropology literally means the study of humans, and it involves both sociocultural and biological aspects of humankind. Anthropologists examine human cultural/biological variation and complexity through a combination of the scientific and humanistic methods. The discipline is holistic, historical, and interpretive, highlighting both conceptual understanding and hands-on fieldwork experience. Anthropology is intrinsically global in scope emphasizing the examination of the similarities and differences between human groups, cultures, and societies. The Minor The department offers a minor degree in anthropology, consisting of a minimum of 21 credit hours. The following subfields of anthropology are included: cultural anthropology, the study of human cultures in the present or recent past, biological anthropology, the study of humans from a biological and evolutionary perspective, and archaeology, the study of human cultures through examining the material record. Unique Features of the Minor The minor in anthropology at SLU offers students the opportunity to explore exciting courses such as race and ethnicity, environmental anthropology, archaeology, primate social behavior, and forensic anthropology as well as providing a background in basic anthropological theory and social science methodology. Possibilities are available for field courses in archaeology and primate behavior, as well as assisting faculty with ongoing research projects. By participating in the minor, students will be further prepared to successfully function in an interconnected world. The minor in anthropology complements a variety of other majors at SLU.
