Anthropology and Jobs. A Guide for Undergraduates.
Bernard, H. Russell; Sibley, Willis E.
Focus in this anthropology career guide is on suggestions about how to combine a degree in anthropology with supplementary training in order to qualify for a variety of positions after undergraduate study. A series of steps which the undergraduate major in anthropology might pursue to prepare for employment are outlined, and the significance of the master's and doctoral degrees are also discussed. Career opportunities are listed under 34 different occupational headings, e.g., health assistance occupations, city management, government agencies, counseling and helping occupations, market research, recreation, science writing, and law. A brief description under each heading is supplemented with sources of additional information (mostly addresses for organizations in the field). Two tables list educational requirements for each of the 34 occupational fields. The first indicates level of training (BA, BA plus training, MA/MS) for each field. The second lists suggested number of elective courses in one or more of 16 other fields (e.g., business, journalism, writing, architecture, political science) which should be combined with anthropology courses to prepare for jobs in each of the 34 occupational fields. Two sample resumes are appended. (TA)
