Today’s anthropology is concerned with addressing the problems faced by people in a global community. With a focus on service and contribution through the application of scientific and humanistic methods, adding an Applied Anthropology minor is a great complement to a major outside of Anthropology. Through faculty mentorship, field schools, and internships, you’ll be thoroughly supported in applying your education in the real world.
