Sociology and Anthropology
Careers in Anthropology
You are considering a major or minor in anthropology, and the first question from everyone (especially your parents) is "What are you going to do with it when you graduate?" A quick answer: "Lots!" Anthropology trains us to understand the dynamics in groups through careful observation, to comprehend the values and practices of people in other societies and to make sense of-and become comfortable with-cultural diversity. As our world becomes more interconnected, employers in all fields are increasingly looking for such skills in job candidates. They have learned that these skills can be invaluable in a wide variety of settings-from classrooms to hospitals, from construction sites to courtrooms, from sub-Saharan villages to American suburbs, from Wall Street to the World Bank. The websites listed here contain information about the range of potential uses for anthropological knowledge and insight.
