Career Opportunities: Career opportunities are limited with only an A.B.

Other Learning Opportunities: Archaeological Site File and occasional research support for faculty.
Student Organizations: Anyone interested in anthropology is invited to join the Anthropology Society. The bimonthly meetings alternate between serious discussions about anthropology, such as graduate study opportunities or careers in anthropology, and more light-hearted social events.
