Anthropologist

How can I become an Anthropologist?

Anthropology is a field where a bachelors degree will not count for much on an application to become an anthropologist. At the very least, a masters degree is required, and frequently, a doctorate. One can work with anthropologists while having a bachelors degree, but it won't help one actually become an anthropologist.

Anthropology is a scientific field, so the education requirements can be demanding. Usually, it's a good idea to start focusing one's study in a particular area or topic within the very broad field of anthropology in one's later years of undergraduate study, and then become even more focused in graduate degrees.

Many graduate degree programs include some measure of field experience, where one goes to an actual archaeological dig, or works with actual objects at museums. Education and experience are the keys to advancement, and sometimes even getting a job opportunity at all.

Physical anthropologists often study the archaeological remains of human beings and study how those people groups lived, looking at nutrition, disease, population density, etc. There are also anthropologists that focus on language and its role among humans, how it changes, and how its function differs between cultures. In addition, there are biophysical anthropologists that investigate the origins of human beings by examining the fossil record and making inferences about evolutionary dynamics. Finally, probably the most famous of all anthropologists are archaeologists, who study what remains of past people to piece together culture, history, technologies, etc.

What skills or qualities do I need to become an Anthropologist?

The point of science is investigation and research, so an anthropologist needs analytical intelligence, skill at mathematics/statistics and an open mind. The use of computers is increasingly important as software has become important for data analysis and modeling of theories and technology is used increasingly to analyze physical objects. Anthropologists, like other scientists, must also become adept at keeping up to date on the forefront of ...
