The Medical Anthropology minor develops students' understanding of health from the perspective of human cultural and biological diversity. Current trends in education and employment show a growing need for medical anthropology knowledge and expertise in a variety of national and international career directions. This Minor therefore prepares students for future graduate studies and work in health professions, including medicine, global health, nursing, and social work.

Admission Requirements

  • The minor is not open to anthropology majors.

Minor Requirements

  • Students must earn a grade of "C" (2.0) or better in all courses used to satisfy the minor.
  • At least 15 hours used in the minor must be earned at UCF within the Department of Anthropology.
  • 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.)
