Anthropology majors are trained to think independently and critically, communicate effectively, and function in a multicultural world. Employers appreciate liberal arts majors for their multiple skills and their ability to adapt to a variety of tasks and work environments. 

Participating in internships and cooperative education opportunities is highly recommended to enhance students’ practical training and development.
