Minor in Anthropology

Requirements for the minor are six courses—three core courses: Introduction to Cultural Anthropology; Doing Anthropological Fieldwork; and The Ethnographic Imagination and three anthropology electives.

We strongly recommend that students take Introduction to Cultural Anthropology prior to enrolling in other departmental courses. Students must take an anthropology course before enrolling in Doing Anthropological Fieldwork. Only seniors may enroll in Anthropological Theory. The introductory course may be taken at another university. All other core courses must be taken at Georgetown.

All electives must be anthropology courses or taught by an anthropologist in another GU department. See above list for electives.
