Anthropology Minor

The Social and Behavioral Sciences Department offers a minor in anthropology. The minor is of value to students who wish to integrate interests in a wide range of humanist concerns with the cross-cultural perspective and analytic framework provided by anthropology. A student desiring a minor in anthropology must register with the Department and take a minimum of 17 credits of anthropology courses, at least 8 of which must be taken at SUNY Poly. ANT 310 Introduction to Cultural Anthropology is the only required course for the anthropology minor. In addition, the additional elective courses must be selected in consultation with an anthropology advisor.
