Anthropology Graduate Students on a Professional Trail
This year the Department of Anthropology celebrates the 40th anniversary of our applied Masters program and 50th anniversary of our Bachelors program! As you know, the applied anthropology Masters program at The University of Memphis remains the national exemplar. We are particularly recognized for the success 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, and we support student travel to participate in national conferences.
This spring, more than a dozen of our graduate students plan to present their work at the Society for Applied Anthropology meetings. This year’s host city is the lovely – but pricey – Santa Fe, New Mexico. To facilitate student travel we are launching a campaign effort to raise $5,000 in just 3 weeks. Join us in sending our graduate students to Santa Fe!
Any unused funds will go towards future graduate conference trips.
