Anthropology, Minor

Program Overview

As a student in the anthropology program at Case Western Reserve University, you will be challenged to form a unique perspective on human behavior, institutions, and biology. Skills of investigation, discovery, and critical thinking prepare you for a wide range of careers, including health, international affairs, public service, education, law, management, and industry. An undergraduate degree in anthropology can lead to further study in medicine and law, or to advanced study in various academic programs. Just a few examples of the exciting opportunities open to anthropologists include working with local police forensic departments, studying health issues for hospitals or medical centers, and consulting for companies that develop software and electronics.

Students pursuing a major or minor in anthropology may choose one of four areas of concentration: general anthropology, biological anthropology, archaeology, and medical anthropology. Each of these emphases enables you to develop the qualitative and quantitative analytic skills necessary for both a career and further academic study.
