Anthro 3001: Anthropology as a Major and a Career

The course has two main aims: (1) to provide you with the information and skills needed to be a successful student in the Department of Anthropology, and (2) to prepare you to use your degree productively after you graduate. You will learn about departmental programs and University resources through guest speakers and library workshops, and you will explore career options through an individual and group project.
