The goal of the Minor in Anthropology is to broaden and support a student's major area of study. The Anthropology Minor develops cross-cultural sensitivity and an awareness of broader social structures that impact individuals and communities. During this education process students learn to broker between different peoples, which is essential to all job skills. The program at KPU provides background enrichment in very diverse fields to allow students to thrive in the work and research environment.
The Minor in Anthropology enables students to acquire skills and a well-rounded knowledge base in both the general discipline of anthropology and a specific sub-field of study (i.e., archaeology and biological anthropology, or cultural anthropology) that suits their individual interests. This minor may be applied towards any KPU bachelor's degree.
