Peace and Conflict Studies Minor

The Peace and Conflict Studies minor is an interdisciplinary academic program with a global focus and diverse perspectives to complement most majors offered by the University but especially those in the College of Humanities and Fine Arts. The minor provides students with enhanced understanding of the varied causes and consequences of conflict, the history of peace promotion efforts internationally, and strategies for conflict resolution promoted and used by governments and non-government organizations. The minor in Peace and Conflict Studies requires successful completion of eighteen (18) credit hours with a minimum grade of C in each course.

See Dr. Chris Gunn (cgunn@coastal.edu) for more information about the minor.

Anthropology Minor

An Anthropology minor can add a holistic component to students majoring in biological sciences, social sciences, arts, and humanities. In an applied context, Anthropology adds depth to History, Sociology, Psychology, Science, Geography, Politics, Business and Communication, and World Languages and Cultures degrees. This minor is an asset to those entering an ever-expanding global market, where students exposed to the dynamics of human diversity and variation, past and present, have a competitive and functional edge. It also will prepare students to undertake graduate work in Anthropology. The over-arching objective of the Anthropology minor is to engage students in the exploration of human change over time, from archaeological, socio-cultural and biological perspectives.

Requirements for the 18-hour minor include two introductory courses and an accompanying laboratory (7 credit hours), with an additional 11 hours of anthropology courses at the 300-level or above. Of these, no more than four (4) hours of credit may be counted towards the minor from internships and field research.



ANTH 101 Primates, People and Prehistory (3 credits)

ANTH 101L Primates, People and Prehistory Laboratory (1 credit)?

ANTH 102 Understanding Other Cultures (3 credits)

Electives (11 credits): complete 11 ANTH credit hours at the 300-level or above (11 credits)
