Archaeology dig of skeletonAnthropology prepares students for excellent jobs and opens doors to various career paths. Courses provide global information and thinking skills critical to such fields as international business and law, public health, human resources, teaching, advocacy, and public service. While the job market for university-based anthropologists is relatively steady, demand for anthropological training is increasing in other areas.

There is a growing need for analysts and researchers with sharp thinking skills who can manage, evaluate, and interpret the large volume of data on human behavior.

The global marketplace of the twenty-first century requires the type of global, holistic knowledge an anthropological perspective brings. Corporations such as Intel, Kodak, Whirlpool, AT&T, General Motors, Citicorp, Hallmark, and Motorola have recognized the need for anthropologically-trained employees as a means to reach multicultural markets both within the United States and internationally.
