Mansfield University... Developing Tomorrow's Leaders Sociology & Anthropology


The goal of our program in Anthropology is for our students to acquire critical thinking skills, oral and written communication skills, "people" skills, and a great understanding of many different cultures. These skills have many applications in public service, political activism and the private sector. Anthropology majors increase their marketability with gaining experience in an industry while in college, through internships, part-time jobs, or volunteer work. Additionally, students can add to their range of knowledge by taking courses within or outside their major that would give them specific information useful in their career field of interest.

Some of the employment areas for Anthropology majors include:

  • Teaching in Universities and Colleges
  • Museums
  • Federal Agencies
