Anthropology Minor


Lauren Townshend

The Anthropology Minor provides a basic understanding of the richness and complexity of human cultures. This understanding yields the intellectual advantage of a deeper comprehension of the world and one's place within it; the practical advantage is the the doors of opportunity which knowledge of varied cultural perspectives can open.

Degree requirements as follows:

Anthropology Minor (25 credits)

  • Anth 201
  • Anth 102 or 210 or 215
  • Electives in anthropology to complete 25 credits for the minor.
    (This is usually three additional 5 credit classes)

At least half of the credits required for a minor must be earned at WWU.

Only one 100-level course will count toward a minor.
