A degree in anthropology
The broad nature of an anthropological education makes it well suited for the professional demands of today's world, which values culturally savvy, adaptable workers. The ability of anthropologists to see problems through a fresh "outsider's" vantage point is particularly valued by students who go on to work in business, consulting and other administrative fields.
