Anthropology, the study of humans, includes sociocultural anthropology, biological anthropology, and archaeology. Courses offered by the Department of Anthropology span the natural sciences, social sciences, and humanities and provide a broad understanding of human nature and society for students in other fields and for anthropology majors. The broad perspective on human culture and biology that anthropology offers can enhance studies in many other fields, including history, psychology, international studies, environmental studies, ecology and evolution, geography, earth system science, literature, political science, folklore, language study, art history, and public policy and management. Careers: A bachelor’s degree in anthropology prepares the graduate for employment in areas where clear communication, analysis and synthesis, and respect for diversity are valued. Anthropology provides a suitable background for positions with federal, state, and local agencies and prepares the student for citizenship in a multicultural world. Students seeking work as professional anthropologists should plan for advanced degrees in anthropology. Graduates with master’s or PhD degrees may find work in government, community colleges, or museums. For university teaching and research careers, a PhD degree is necessary.
