Anthropology

Traditionally anthropologists have sought employment in academic settings, especially teaching and research positions that require a graduate degree. In recent years, however, the value of a bachelor's degree in anthropology has been recognized in the nonacademic sector and an increasing number of anthropologists have gained employment in this type of setting. The experience of attaining a degree in anthropology can provide a host of skills that are highly valued by employers, particularly in our increasingly diverse, global society. As a result, graduates with a major in anthropology are entering careers in areas as diverse as museums; contract archaeology; international business; religious, social, and governmental agencies; marketing and advertising; education; personnel administration; urban planning; migrant and minority council work; public health; and academia.
