Study What Makes Us Human
Where did we come from? What makes us human? How are we similar to and different from other people? Where do we go from here? If these questions inspire you, you may enjoy an anthropology career.
Anthropology is the holistic study of humanity. We draw from biology, social sciences, and humanities to better understand our experiences as humans. Anthropology graduates pursue careers in academia, government, cultural and natural resources, medicine, public health, forensics, museums, tourism, and business.
