Anthropology Graduate Students on a Professional Trail
This year the Department of Anthropology celebrates the 41st anniversary of our applied Masters program and 51st anniversary of our Bachelors program! As you know, our program is nationally recognized for the successful career placement of our graduates. A key to succeeding in an increasingly competitive job market is offering students real-world professional development experience. This includes opportunities to present their work to a national audience where they build networks to advance their careers. To achieve this, our faculty pays for student membership in the Society for Applied Anthropology (SFAA), and we support student travel to participate in national conferences. This spring, several students plan to attend the SfAA meetings in Portland, Oregon, the American Ethnological Society meetings in St. Louis, Missouri, and the Central States Anthropological Society meetings in Memphis, TN. Please help support this important part of their professional development by contributing to our campaign to raise $3000 to cover travel expenses and conference registration fees.
