Anthropology offers an academic minor. Anthropology courses are accepted in other majors and minors such as nursing, sociology, environmental studies, and Spanish-Latin American studies. The discipline is a social science that looks at human behavior from a bio-cultural lens in its sub-fields of cultural anthropology, linguistic anthropology, archaeology, and physical anthropology. Concerned with both modern and prehistoric humans, the study of anthropology links the humanities and the sciences through the holistic study of our evolving cultural and biological species.
