Anthropology

Uncover mysteries of the world

To understand why and how we function today, it’s vital to discover our past. As an Anthropology minor at Mercer University, you will investigate the evolution of humans, culture, societies, and more. You will uncover mysteries that are hidden deep in our world by dissecting the Anthropology curriculum and conducting your own research.

A minor in Anthropology consists of 15 semester credit hours, including two 300-level courses or above. See all program requirements and course descriptions in the Mercer University 2020-21 Catalog. View the Anthropology check sheet.
