Why study anthropology?
According to our students…
- “I’ll have a chance to be in an interesting field of work with many different opportunities with this one major.”
- “Anthropology as a field is very broad so learning is never tedious or boring. As a major it can be applied anywhere from business to forensics.”
- “I am going to be a doctor, so it’s important for me to understand the cultures and people around me in order to provide the best possible care.”
- “It opens my mind to an entirely different way of thinking.”
The Department of Anthropology trains students to compete and make meaningful contributions as citizens in a wide range of careers. Anthropologists are increasingly sought after by businesses, nursing programs, educational institutions, government agencies, medical schools, graduate programs, and others concerned to ask and answer interesting and challenging questions about human diversity.
