Today, students with degrees in anthropology are sought after for jobs in government, non-profit organizations, and the private sectors. The majority work outside university settings. The ability to advance beyond entry-level positions in most of these settings is contingent on graduate level education.
Most undergraduate majors in anthropology do not become professional anthropologists, but instead earn graduate degrees and work in related fields. Undergraduate majors in anthropology are also highly sought by Business and Law Schools due to the expertise mentioned above. Anthropology majors have a documented higher acceptance rate into Medical schools than peers who major in Biology or Chemistry!
