Anthropologists pursue careers in the nonprofit, public and government sectors; research, teaching and academia; museums or archaeological and heritage sites and parks; and business and marketing. Undergraduates can major or minor in anthropology, while master's students pursue one of three degree tracks: cultural anthropology, museum and heritage studies, or archaeology.
