Students majoring in anthropology enter a wide range of fields from forensics or museum work to public archaeology, social services, and teaching. Students should think expansively about what you can do with your cross-cultural and multicultural understandings: work with immigrants in the health field, children in multicultural classrooms, in international business or as an archaeologist or scholar. Copies of Great Jobs for Anthropology Majors and Designing An Anthropology Career are available in the Anthropology Office.
If you are interested in archaeology, you should concentrate in Public Archaeology; and if you would like to become a cultural anthropologist you should pursue that concentration. If you are not sure, you should look over all of the concentrations, begin to take courses and see what areas of study interest you. You may change your concentration if you decide the one you've selected is not appropriate for you.
The Department Office Assistant Patti Dyer can tell you who your advisor is, and you should meet with your advisor during the semester. Your advisor will help you select courses, discuss research opportunities, and future career plans. He or she will review your Degree Audit and work with you to make sure that all of your college and department course requirements are fulfilled.
