Honors Minor in Cultural or Behavioral Analysis (A)

Converging with the Honors College core value of community, the Honors Minor in Cultural or Behavioral Analysis will investigate the theme of pathways: crossroads and intersections with the potential to align and divide people. Human aspects of the Appalachian region – economics, politics, culture – provide concrete examples of how individuals can join together for mutual benefit or divide into competing coalitions. Students completing this minor will be prepared to reflect on the tension between individual freedom and collective responsibility through such disciplines as anthropology, economics, art history, political science, sociology, and psychology.
