In an increasingly connected world, a foundation in multicultural studies is more important than ever. This minor allows students to develop a broad and deep understanding of the diversity and interconnectedness of societies around the world in the past and present. Students will be exposed to various cultures around the world in comparative and specialist courses from the perspectives of cultural and archaeological anthropology, including health, environment, governance, policy, and more.

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.)
  • Only one Internship, Co-op, Independent Study, Directed Research, or Study Abroad course can be used toward the minor with prior approval from the department advisor.
  • Students should regularly 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.
