Anthropologists explore world culture
Anthropologists study people and cultures around the world, their evolutionary history, and how they adapt to their environments. Anthropology examines past societies to learn about the present and looks at interactions between culture and biology and the impact on human diversity. Students choosing anthropology as a major typically follow the pathway through the Anthropology and Archaeology Program, then transfer to a bachelor’s degree program at a four-year institution.
Today’s anthropologists do not just work in exotic locations. Anthropologists can be found in a diverse array of fields and careers in corporations, all levels of government, educational institutions, and nonprofit associations.
