Welcome to the Undergraduate Studies Program in Anthropology!

Anthropology prepares college graduates to enter into a broad range of jobs and professions by providing them with research, writing and analytical skills that will enable them to confront problems, issues and situations that require cultural sensitivity. College graduates with a degree in anthropology thrive in social services, teaching, law, medicine & health professions, government, NGOs, international relations, business, bioscience, technology, and many more lines of work.
