ANTHROPOLOGY  MINOR  AT  WAYNE  STATE  COLLEGE           

 

    Like some other small colleges, WSC subsumes the discipline of Anthropology under the topic of Sociology.  While                    Anthropology includes much sociology, it is broader in its outlook, adding physical, historic and pre-historic components, and examining human behavior in cultures world-wide.

 

    WSC offers Anthropology only as a minor under the field of sociology.  Classes are listed with a SOC prefix, instead of an ANT prefix.

    In order to complete an Anthropology minor a student must take 21 credits of Anthropology courses, 12 of which must be unduplicated by the student's major.
