The Sociocultural Anthropology minor introduces students to a range of theories, problematics, and questions in the study of social and cultural differences around the world. Such training is relevant to students in a wide variety of fields, including area studies (Asian and Asian-American studies, Africana studies, Latin American and Caribbean studies, Judaic studies), economics, geography, history, art history, political science, psychology, sociology and women's studies. This minor is also useful to students interested in cultural diversity and social behavior and to those interested in gaining a global perspective on social problems and comparative cultural phenomena.

Internships, Research Opportunities, and More

The department offers courses on field- and lab-based research methods that give students hands-on experience in how to conduct anthropological research. In particular, the department has just developed a Freshman Research Immersion (FRI) stream in molecular and biomedical anthropology, a research program for high-achieving freshmen that provides hands-on research experience in a laboratory setting. The department also offers a six-week archaeology field school in upstate New York each summer and additional fieldwork opportunities are available in North and South America and Europe. Students are also encouraged to participate in study-abroad programs, as well as workshops on research skills, and internships can be arranged for anthropology credit. The Undergraduate Anthropology Organization is a student group on campus that sponsors field trips to museums, arranges career seminars, and organizes social events and academic forums to examine issues in anthropology.
