The Anthropology Certificate is a 12-credit certificate that is well defined and offers a coherent disciplinary approach to subjects that are often shared with other disciplines and fields of study such as history, culture, social processes, language, and human evolution broadly construed. In providing specifically anthropological perspectives, the certificate serves to enrich and deepen student learning in other disciplines. It complements interdisciplinary majors like American Indian Studies; Latin American and Latinx Studies; Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies; as well as other disciplinary majors in the humanities and the social and natural sciences, including geography, history, and biology.
