Geoffrey Hedges, '13
Geoff graduated from the College at Brockport with an Anthropology major in the spring of 2013. Geoff is now working on a Ph.D. at The University of Buffalo in Environmental Archaeology.
Caitlin Moore graduated from the College in August 2010 but the learning didn't stop at graduation. Two months later, she was excavating ruins in Jordan on an archaeological field school.
The anthropology major and minor provide solid preparation for postgraduate training and careers in a number of fields, among them archaeology, applied anthropology, museum work, conservation, education, forensic science, law, health/medicine, international business, marketing, human services, tourism and other fields that require an understanding of cultural diversity and human adaptability.
The skills Anthropology students gain in observing and recording human behavior, interviewing, constructing of survey instruments, and scientific analysis are invaluable in many career fields. Corporate anthropology, which draws upon anthropological fieldwork skills to research consumer behavior, is a recent and growing field.
