Anthropology

The Anthropology Program offers a minor in anthropology and a major concentration within the sociology major.

Minor Program

The minor in anthropology provides students with knowledge of the field of anthropology that significantly goes beyond that gained in the introductory course. Students gain substantial exposure to at least two of the four sub-fields of anthropology (sociocultural, biological, archaeological and linguistic) and to a particular ethnographic area, as well as to other topical areas.

This minor readily complements majors in other social sciences, the humanities, business and management and the natural sciences (especially biology), and broadens students’ knowledge of cultures other than their own.
Students who wish to minor in anthropology should contact the program director as early as possible in their career at Le Moyne.

The minor requires 15 credit hours to include:
1.     ANT 101 Introduction to Anthropology

2.     One course in an anthropological sub-field other than sociocultural, to be selected from among:
ANT 109 (BIO 109) Human Evolution
ANT 300  Anthropological Linguistics
ANT 315 (REL 315) Temples, Shrines and Tells: Ancient Near East Archaeology

3.     One course in an ethnographic area, from among:
ANT 212 Native American History & Cultures
ANT 213 Peoples and Cultures of Southeast Asia
ANT 412 (HST 412) Ethnohistorical Approaches to Native American History and Culture

4.     Two other topical anthropology courses.
In this group, we highly recommend:
ANT 303 (SOC 303) Social Theory in Anthropology and Sociology.

Other anthropology courses meeting this requirement include:
ANT 102 World Cultures
ANT 200 Cultural Myths and Cultural Realities: Perspectives in Socio-Cultural Anthropology
ANT 212 Native American History and Cultures
ANT 213 Peoples and Cultures of Southeast Asia: A Topical Approach
ANT 222 Cultures and Cures
ANT 223 Cultural Selves
ANT 300 Anthropological Linguistics
ANT 303 (SOC 303) Social Theory in Anthropology and  Sociology
ANT 305 (ART 305) Museums and Social Science
ANT 311 (REL 321) Local Religions of Native America, Asia, and Oceania
ANT 312 (REL 323) Native American Religions
ANT 360 Anthropology Examines Traditional Religion: Witchcraft, Oracles and Magic
ANT 391-399 Special Topics in Anthropology
ANT 412 (HST 412) Ethnohistorical Approaches to Native American History and Culture
ANT 422 Medical Anthropology

NOTE: A student majoring in sociology who chooses to minor in anthropology must complete the anthropology minor requirements separately from the sociology major requirements with the exception of ANT 303 (SOC 303) Social Theory in Anthropology and Sociology, which may be counted toward the major in sociology and the minor in anthropology.
