Anthropology prepares students interested in any career to achieve success in an increasingly multicultural world.
Several programs of study at Illinois Wesleyan can be enhanced by the addition of a minor or major in anthropology, including international studies, history, biology, business, religion, and any of the foreign languages.
Some of our students go on to attend graduate school in anthropology, development studies, medicine, international studies, law and other fields, while others utilize their anthropology background to launch professional careers in domestic and international trade, social and civil services, advertising, museum curating, government, contract archaeology, and education.
The anthropology faculty have stayed in touch with many of the alumnae who have gone on to graduate school or to work in a range of professions.
Students interested in a particular career path are encouraged to consult the faculty for guidance in how to achieve the post-graduation goals they have set for themselves.
