Anthropology - Graduate Minor

For the minor in anthropology, students are required to complete at least 9 credits (3 courses) of graduate-level anthropology coursework at the level of 500 or above. A minor in anthropology provides a useful concentration for students developing professional careers in teaching, environmental sciences,  international business, community development, social work, art, and historic preservation. We recommend that students consult the anthropology graduate advisor and focus their coursework in the appropriate subfield.

To include a minor on a student’s transcript, the minor must be listed on the NMSU Graduate Program of Study,  and this form must be signed by the anthropology graduate advisor. Graduate students majoring in anthropology may not also earn a minor in the same field.
