The anthropology major at Alma College gives students a deeper understanding of themselves as well as humankind and culture in general. Studying anthropology as a major or minor also exposes students to tools that help them become lifelong learners who comprehend world issues.
From archaeology to linguistics to botany, anthropology closely connects to all studies in the liberal arts, giving students a well-rounded education. As a result, anthropology students develop a skill set that is in high demand. It also gives students the opportunity to insert their personal interests into their studies.
Alma’s anthropology major prepares students for graduate study in the social sciences. They also are prepared to explore career possibilities in a wide variety of fields, including sociology and social work, business and personnel administration, law, ministry, museum curatorship, corrections and government.
