This is an exciting and challenging time to
major in Anthropology.

There have never been more opportunities for anthropology majors. From careers in market research, technology, product design, international development, government, social justice and more, to pursuing graduate work, majoring in anthropology has never been more promising. It is also a great way to learn about different societies and ways of life and to gain insight into how people think and act in the world. The comparative perspective you develop from studying anthropology is needed more than ever in our diverse and interconnected world.

One of the best ways to keep up with the department is to join our Facebook group. We still have a Yahoo group (established right after Katrina) that we use to facilitate discussion among majors and others interested in anthropology and, in the event of an emergency, it can be used to stay in touch.
