Anthropology is the major of global understanding. It prepares students to understand their world by developing their ability to critically analyze social and cultural institutions, to attend to the impact of different historical experiences and to engage constructively with communities both far away and close to home. Anthropology prepares students for a wide range of professional careers, including law, medicine, foreign service, development, nonprofit work, social services and business, among others.
