Anthropology is global in its perspective, comparatively studying humankind in all places and throughout time. You'll develop an understanding of culture and how it unites human social, political, biological, and historical experiences. Applied research emphasizes issues of human diversity, ethnocentrism, and inequality. An anthropology degree will help in work at non-profit organizations, businesses, and governmental agencies. It's also an excellent degree for pre-law and pre-med students. You might also pursue a research career in socio-cultural anthropology, archaeology, or biological anthropology.
