Employment Resources and Professions Available to Anthropology Graduates

A degree in anthropology is useful since it results in a graduate with skills many employers are looking for: skills in social research, experience in writing, the ability to analyze the root causes of social problems, and being able to work towards solutions with people from a wide variety of cultural backgrounds.

Within an academic setting, graduates can teach anthropology in a variety of departments including biology, geography, political science, public health, psychology, medicine, business, and law. Graduates can also attain an additional teaching degree and teach various social sciences at the high school level, or more basic courses at the primary school level. Graduates with additional certification can also teach English as a second or foreign language and travel abroad.

Outside an academic setting, anthropologists work in government agencies, private businesses, community organizations, museums, independent research institutes, service organizations, and the media. Others can work as independent consultants for agencies such as the Parks Canada, RCMP, UNESCO, WHO, the Federal Court, and Heritage Canada. Their work can involve building research partnerships, evaluating policies, developing new educational programs, recording community histories, providing expertise in various cultures, and providing health services.

Anthropologists can also work for the corporate world such as in applied technology and market research. A degree in anthropology can also be used for entry to law, business, and medicine.
