Anthropology Minor

The Sociology-Anthropology Department offers an undergraduate Minor in Anthropology to all students matriculated in a baccalaureate degree program at Farmingdale State College.

Students who opt to complete a minor in Anthropology must apply through the Sociology-Anthropology department.

The discipline of Anthropology provides students with the tools and perspectives necessary for understanding how humans and their cultures have developed and most critically, how we continue to develop and change our cultures and societies. The fundamental concepts, theories, and research methodologies of Anthropology provide students with useful tools for understanding human cultures and the various social institutions in which we all participate, enabling them to meet the many challenges of living and working in what has been termed "the global community."

The Anthropology Minor consists of 18 credits in Anthropology. At least twelve of the credits must be in advanced courses in Anthropology at the 200-level or higher. Students enrolled in the Anthropology Minor Program are required to maintain a cumulative GPA of 2.5 in their Anthropology courses.
