Anthropology Resources

Opportunities for field work and library research in each of the four subfields of anthropology are available. Archaeological field school surveys are conducted alternate summers. The department engages in a series of funded projects, proving a wide diversity of research opportunities. Library holdings include resources for those pursuing cross-culture and culture-area research.

Careers for graduates in anthropology lie in both the public and private sectors of the economy and are increasing. Opportunities may be found in teaching (public school, community college and college), federal and state agencies, social services, applied health settings, museums and international business.
