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.
