The Captivating and Curious Careers of Anthropology

Discovering the bow of a ship underneath the World Trade Center, helping corporations understand how people's identities show up in technology – or a think tank looking at social relationships in the workplace, working with gangs in East LA, a death investigator helping police solve crimes – it seems anthropology is everywhere these days. And that’s no coincidence because anthropologists ARE everywhere these days, studying the biological, cultural, linguistic, and archaeological aspects of what it means to be human. The American Anthropological Association has created a video series to showcase who we are, what we do, and how we add value to society. Join us as we explore the Captivating and Curious Careers of Anthropology.

Why would anyone choose to major in Anthropology? Do people even do that nowadays? My name is Alivia Brown and I am currently an undergraduate student at UCLA. Anthropology is a hidden gem and offers perspective on the world through a unique and well rounded lens. However, the career opportunities seem few and far between. Are there careers for anthropology students or are they just hard to find?

I spent this week doing some research on the most common job paths for anthropology students: Academics, Government, Corporate, and Non-Profit Organizations. I explain each job path according to my research from the week in this video.

It must not be ignored, however, that I am simply an undergraduate student on my journey to find a career. These are the answers I have found but I'm sure there are professionals who can offer better advice. So why do I do it? Because the professionals are not easily found and do not want to spend their time talking to undergraduates about career paths! So I'm gonna figure it out myself...
