Anthropology Minor

Lisa Corewyn, Assistant Professor and Coordinator

The Anthropology minor is an interdisciplinary program that provides exposure to the theories, principles and practices in the three subdisciplines of anthropology: archaeology, cultural anthropology, and biological anthropology. Students in the minor are required to take an introductory course that reviews the three subdisciplines of anthropology and are then free to choose from ANTH-designated electives in any or each of the subdisciplines. Students may also include courses from a list of approved non-ANTH-designated courses that enables them to expand their anthropological perspective outside of the discipline.


Minors are required to take at least 15 credits at Ithaca College.
