Transcript of Anthropology as a Career

Anthropology. What is it?? The word “Anthropos” means human and the word “logia” means knowledge, so...
anthropologists study us! Anthropology isnt just the study of humans, though, it can range anywhere from figuring things out about humans a billion years ago or how societies are evolved today! When it comes to schooling, after getting your bachelor’s degree, most people tend to complete a master’s degree or a PhD in anthropology.
~A bachelor’s degree takes 4 years.
~A Master’s programs may take 1 or 2 years.
~A PhD takes another 4 or 5 years to complete. With a master’s degree, you are qualified to work for some positions in museums, government departments, and the private sector, but if you wish to become a professor of anthropology at a college, you will need a PhD! Starting salaries for entry-level anthropology professors range from about $38,000 to $50,000 a year, but with a good job... Salaries for the anthropologists who work for the government vary greatly depending on the nature of their job and their level of expertise.

The median earnings for these anthropologists are about $50,000 a year, with most earning between $30,000 and $82,000. (In addition to a salary, anthropologists get health and dental benefits, paid vacation days, and paid sick days when they work for the government or a college!) I don't think I would ever become a forensic anthropologist, only because I dont know if I could deal with dead people all day, but i would definatly be another type of anthropologist, maybe a medical anthropologist because i would get to see how different societies treat different diseases and that is interesting to me. There are many different types of anthropologists!
Physical or biological
Cultural and social
AND MORE!!! ...like a senior professor at prestigious college, they can make from $50,000 to more than $110,000 a year! The Entry Wage is about $20.58 an hour.
Median Wage is $29.55 an hour and for only the experienced, they get $36.17 an hour.
