Skills that are in demand.

Anthropologists are in demand in corners of the world you might never imagine. Museums and libraries hire curators and archivists, corporations hire anthropologists to analyze their marketing strategies, colleges and universities value teachers and researchers in the field, and businesses and agencies, both public and private, provide exciting work for anthropologists. More and more disciplines and industries are discovering the value of the integrated study of human culture that is anthropology.

Because our students are trained to discover evidence, analyze it, and come to their own conclusions, they have skills that can be applied to any field.

Our department has a long history of providing our students with the skills and abilities necessary to succeed as professional anthropologists.
