Anthropology

What Can I Do With An Anthropology Major?

From archaeology to zoo archaeology, opportunities abound in anthropology. Stop by or contact one of our faculty to see where your interests fit into our program.

Alma’s anthropology major prepares students for graduate study in the social sciences as well as career possibilities in a wide variety of fields. Our graduates have gone on to work at AmeriCorps, Price Waterhouse, Global Majority, Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum, and the Cranbrook Institute.

Recent graduates are pursuing master’s or doctoral degrees in archaeology, museum curation, and international policy at institutions that include the University of Aberdeen, Michigan State University, and Monterey Institute of International Policy. A recent dual major taught English in Thailand under a Fulbright grant.
