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.


The first two assignmentshave been graded and commented. If you don't see a grade and comment, or if you have a question about it, let me know.

The url for the third homework video "Real People Real Careers," is listed on the turnitin course calendar, on Oct 10 (the assignment itself is due Oct 31). Let me know if you have trouble viewing it. The link to the assignment is in the Assignments section
