The Biological Anthropology minor develops an understanding of anthropological approaches to the study of the human body from modern and/or archaeological contexts. This minor is particularly appropriate for students interested in human biology, forensic anthropology, bioarchaeology, mortuary archaeology, or area studies in archaeology.

Minor Requirements

  • Students must earn a grade of "C" (2.0) or better in all courses used to satisfy the minor. Students may make a request to the Undergraduate Coordinator to be granted the use of one C- toward the major requirements.
  • At least 15 hours used in the minor must be earned at UCF.
  • Only two anthropology courses can overlap for students enrolled in multiple anthropology programs (minors or certificates). (Note: The myKnight Audit cannot capture overlapping courses between two or more programs; therefore, students should have their program reviewed by the department before filing for graduation.)
  • Students may substitute one anthropology upper level course that is either an archaeological area study or a health related course with prior permission.
  • Internship, Co-op, or Independent Study credit cannot be used toward the minor without prior approval.
  • Students should consult with a department advisor.

Prerequisite Courses

  • Most courses for this minor will have prerequisites completed as a part of a student's GEP requirement, as general electives, or a student can enroll into courses with consent of instructor.
