Overview

Welcome! Southwestern offers an exciting minor in anthropology, which studies human beings in both their physical and cultural aspects. The minor is a strong accompaniment to any major and provides a solid disciplinary base to get into a graduate program, should you later pursue a professional career in anthropology.

Class topics range from human evolution (physical anthropology) to the cultures of specific North American tribes. Meanwhile, you might simply have some curiosity about the discipline of anthropology and what it can teach you about the human condition, without intending to take several anthropology courses. If that attitude fits you, then wander around, explore the various links, and find out what you can learn for yourself. Have fun!
