Why major in Anthropology?
Anthropology seeks to understand the whole panorama of human existence in both geographic space and over long periods of time. It offers a backdrop against which students can understand their own cultures, traditions, and behaviors and provides them with sensitivity to understanding human biological and cultural similarities and differences.
- Cultural Anthropologists focus on understanding humans through a comparative perspective, one that teaches students to be acute observers and analysts of human behavior.
- Evolutionary anthropologists might study orangutans, observing behavior and collecting urine to assess their social structure.
- Archaeologists might jump back a million years to probe the survival strategies, successes, and failures of the earliest humans.
- Linguistic anthropologists might scrutinize conversation to learn more about the place of individuals in the family structure.
Other areas of anthropological study include forensic anthropology, business anthropology, visual anthropology, environmental anthropology, and museum anthropology. In addition to careers in teaching and research, students of the Anthropology program of Rutgers University can continue on to careers in the many industries that value the anthropologist's perspective and skills.
