Why Choose Anthropology?

The comparative, cross-cultural and global basis of anthropological knowledge adds an important perspective to undergraduate studies in any field.  In fields ranging from the humanities to the social sciences, communications, law, health, education and business, global and multicultural issues are of increasing importance.  Anthropology, as an academic discipline, enables students to comprehend values and practices different from their own; to develop an appreciation of, and sensitivity to, cultural diversity; and to better understand their own lives relative to larger global and historical processes.

A minor in Anthropology can provide valuable research skills and cross-cultural perspectives to any field or career.  Check out this Prezi presentation: This is Anthropology created by Anthropology students at the University of South Florida to learn about the varied ways anthropologists are using their skills to improve their world.
