The Evolutionary Studies minor analyzes contemporary issues in anthropology, psychology, and philosophy with principles of evolutionary biology. While the minor can complement virtually any major field, it is especially relevant to students seeking high level integration of  the natural sciences, behavioral sciences, and humanities using contemporary evolutionary theory as an integrative concept; to students aspiring to teach evolution in the middle and secondary school systems; and  to students interested in cultivating an evolutionary view of human nature.

Every year NKU Anthropology presents the Outstanding Student in Evolutionary Studies Award.
