There are many career and educational options for
anthropology majors. Further anthropological
study leads to both traditional anthropological
careers of teaching and research as well as
careers in applied anthropology. Academic
anthropologists find careers in anthropology
departments, social science departments, and a
variety of other departments or programs, such as
medicine epidemiology public health ethnic,
community, or area studies linguistics
cognitive psychology and neural science.
Applying anthropology offers many opportunities
to use anthropological perspectives and skills.
Jobs filled by anthropology majors include
researchers, evaluators, and administrators.
Cultural anthropologists may pursue the same
range of careers as other social scientists
biological and medical anthropologists have other
skills that are useful in the growing sector of
health-related occupations. Many archaeologists
are employed in American cultural resource
management projects, which are required by
federal and state laws before major building
ventures. Further study in graduate or
professional school is a common path for
undergraduate anthropology majors. Anthropology
provides a strong basis for subsequent
graduate-level education and training in
international law, public health, and other
areas, as well as the social sciences.

Some potential career opportunities for
anthropology majors positions in government,
academia, business or community service
organizations. Government Careers State and
local governmental organizations use
anthropologists in planning, research and
managerial capacities. Contract archaeology is a
growing occupation with state and federal
legislative mandates to assess cultural resources
affected by government funded projects. Forensic
anthropologists, in careers glamorized by
Hollywood and popular novels, not only work with
police departments to help identify mysterious or
unknown remains but also work in university and
museum settings. The federal government is one of
the largest employers of anthropologists outside
of academia. Possible career paths include
international development, cultural resource
management, the legislative branch, forensic and
physical anthropology, natural resource
management, and defense and security sectors.
Academic Careers On campuses, in departments of
anthropology, and in research laboratories,
anthropologists teach and conduct research. They
spend a great deal of time preparing for classes,
writing lectures, grading papers, working with
individual students, composing scholarly
articles, and writing books. A number of academic
anthropologists find careers in other departments
or university programs, such as schools of
medicine, epidemiology, public health, ethnic
studies, cultural studies, community or area
studies, linguistics, education, ecology,
cognitive psychology and neural science.
Corporate and Business Careers Many corporations
look explicitly for anthropologists, recognizing
the utility of their perspective on a corporate
team. A corporate anthropologist working in
market research might conduct targeted focus
groups to examine consumer preference patterns
not readily apparent through statistical or
survey methods. These anthropologists use their
research skills to talk to consumers and users of
technology to find out how products and services
could be improved to better meet the needs of
Non-profit and Community-based Careers Non-governm
ental organizations, such as international health
organizations and development banks employ
anthropologists to help design and implement a
wide variety of programs. However, these aren't
the only opportunities available. Many
anthropologists work in local, community-based
settings for non-profit agencies. Sometimes, they
work through community-based research
organizations like the Institute for Community
Research. Other times, they might work for
established organizations in a community like the
YMCA, local schools, or environmental
organizations. Of course, many graduates of
anthropology programs choose to become an
archaeologist, paleontologist, ethnologist or
primatologist. The complement of knowledge
assimilated through the study of anthropology is
applicable to a wide array of careers.
Anthropology undergraduates also may choose to
seek further study and advance to graduate
school. The study of anthropology provides
students with a wide range of relevant skills
that will equip them well for the 21st-century
economy. In the view of the American
Anthropological Association, anthropology is the
only contemporary disciplin that approaches human
questions from historical, biological, linguistic
and cultural perspectives.
