The Minor in Anthropology consists of 16 points (any four 4-point courses) in the department. Any of the "principles" courses—Culture, Power, Society (ANTH-UA 1), Human Evolution (ANTH-UA 2), Introduction to Archaeology (ANTH-UA 3), and Language, Power, and Society (ANTH-UA 17)—are recommended as overviews to the discipline and as prerequisites for more advanced courses. Minors consult with the DUS to design a program that best accommodates their interests. A grade of C or better is required in every course to be counted toward the minor. Students must take at least two courses from the Department of Anthropology at New York University in order to receive a minor in anthropology from NYU. Internships and independent studies do not count as electives toward the minor.
