The Anthropology Club sponsored the “What Next?” event on March 18, 2010, which featured faculty members and graduate students giving brief presentations on what you can do with an Anthropology degree after graduation.

Faculty presentations included Dr. Amanda Poole discussing opportunities in the Peace Corps, Dr. Elizabeth Cooper on how to market your Anthropology degree, Dr. Sarah Neusius on opportunities in the Student Conservation Association (SCA), Dr. Francis Allard on the process for applying to Ph.D. graduate programs, Dr. Ben Ford on the advantages of attending M.A. degree programs, Dr. Beverly Chiarulli on finding employment in Cultural Resource Management, and three students in the M.A. in Applied Archaeology program discussing their employment experiences after getting their undergraduate degrees. The student presenters were Kristin Swanton on her experience working for several federal agencies, including the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and Department of Defense; Jonathan Libbon on working for the U.S. Department of Agriculture Forest Service and several private consulting firms; and Seth Mitchell on his experience as a manager at a firm hiring graduates for field projects.

The event was organized by Kerianne Mahoney and the other officers of the Anthropology Club. It also featured snacks and an opportunity to sign up for the newly designed Anthro Club T-Shirt. The next Anthro Club event will feature a program about studies of gorilla behavior. Watch for more details.
