Students who plan to declare a Minor in Anthropology must complete the Consent to Complete a Minor Program form and submit it to their College Academic Advisor. Academic Advisors will review the minor requirements with students prior to students submitting the form.


Note: Courses cannot double count between majors and minors, so students need to have a separate set of courses to fulfill their minor.
