What will I learn?

Careers in Anthropology provides an overview of various career paths for students with degrees in anthropology, and helps students develop academic and professional skills in preparation for life after UCLA. Specifically, it focuses on the ways in which one can apply anthropological concepts, research methodologies, and analytical skills to a range of careers. Students are exposed to a speaker series where UCLA alumni discuss how they have applied their anthropology degrees to their work outside of academia. Students also gain insight about their own skills, learn ways to narrow the skill gap between their present skill set and what they would like to accomplish in the future, complete methods exercises they can add to their resumes, and learn ethical issues for doing ethnographic work inside and outside of academia.
