Q. What kind of employment can I seek with an Anthropology degree?
A. A student with a B.A. in Anthropology acquires critical analysis skills, oral and written communication skills, and a good understanding of cultural differences. These skills and knowledge have many applications in public service. Employments areas include: teaching, museum work, government work, international development agencies and the United Nations, social services, and consulting for projects that require historical, ethnographic, or interviewing skills.
Q. Can I get a graduate degree (post-B.A.) in Anthropology at the University of Windsor?
A. No, but through careful planning, you can obtain an Anthropology undergraduate degree and at the same time take sufficient required courses to be admitted into the graduate program in Sociology at the University of Windsor. You may choose to be supervised by Anthropology faculty for thesis work in Sociology at the MA level. [Anthropology students interested in entering the MA program in the Department of Sociology, Anthropology, and Criminology must take 02-250, 48-302, 48-308, 49-415, and one fourth year theory course in Sociology (i.e., one course from the 48-403 to 48-408 sequence).]
Q. Who teaches Anthropology courses at the University of Windsor?
A. We are an interdisciplinary department so that some of our courses are cross-listed with Sociology courses taught by professors who generally have post-graduate training in both Anthropology and Sociology. Also, sessional instructors teach some Anthropology courses as the opportunity arises. Full-time Anthropology faculty are: Dr. John Albanese, Dr. Glynis George, and Dr. Lynne Phillips.
Q. Is there an Anthropology Club for students at the University of Windsor?
A. Yes! The Anthropology Society has always been a lively group, organized by and for students. Activities include field trips, film nights, and working in the Department’s museum. Keep your eye out for flyers posted at the beginning of year for meeting times.
Q. Is there a national organization of anthropologists?
A. Yes. The Canadian Anthropology Society/Société Canadienne d’Anthropologie (CASCA) is the bilingual national organization of professional anthropologists. Check out CASCA’s website and the organization’s peer-reviewed journal, Anthropologica, at www.cas-sca.ca
