Anthropology Student Involvement

Study Anthropology at USCB

The Minor in Anthropology program at the University of South Carolina Beaufort helps students understand the interconnectivity of knowledge about people and their cultures by bridging the social sciences, humanities, business and natural sciences. Anthropology is the only contemporary discipline that approaches issues from historical, biological, linguistic and cultural perspectives.

What We Offer


Joey Daniello
“Anthropology is an important discipline for everyone, no matter what your major is. As a species, mankind is constantly evolving, and to better understand where we’re going, we need to understand where we’ve come from. I love history and travel so minoring in anthropology made perfect sense. I love learning about new places, cultures, religions and people, and I felt that anthropology would help me to better understand the world and to look deeply into the rich diversity of places.”
