Online Anthropology Degrees and Careers


Anthropology is the study of human beings in their biological and cultural diversity. Though many of us hear the word and think of Indiana Jones, anthropology jobs are usually more academic and scholarly and more relevant than digging for trinkets. Understanding ourselves by studying our past and present is what anthropology is about, and some momentous discoveries have been made by people with anthropology degrees.

Education & Career Opportunities in Anthropology

Because it is a highly academic field, anthropology degrees are primarily offered by four-year colleges and research universities. Anthropology degree programs range from undergraduate to postdoctoral studies. Anthropologists often spend time abroad or in remote areas conducting research, and online degrees in anthropology are one way for you to complete your degree no matter where you are located.

People with degrees in anthropology find jobs at dig sites, in academic institutions, and as experts for institutions like museums. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, anthropologists and archaeologists in 2009 enjoyed a median annual wage of $53,460.

Post-secondary teachers of anthropology--jobs that generally require more advanced degrees like PhDs--earned a median annual wage of $69,520 in 2008.

With a degree in anthropology, you may also go on to work in human resources or marketing, applying your specialized understanding of human behavior to corporate environments or market research.
