The FSU Department of Anthropology began in 1950 and has matriculated hundreds, if not thousands, of undergraduate and graduate students. Anthropology alumni go on to successful careers in archaeology, forensics, academia, professional law, medicine, library sciences, federal agencies, military, state and national parks, state and national forests, private consulting, and the list goes on.
Our graduates attribute their career success to the amazing opportunities afforded them while students at FSU. Many of our students conduct original research and share their findings at professional conferences. These venues give our students the platform to share ideas, network with other professionals, cultivate their communication skills, and represent our department.
The Department of Anthropology is in a period of dynamic growth with the addition of new faculty, an expanding graduate program, and numerous fieldwork and lab opportunities in sociocultural anthropology, archaeology and biological anthropology.
We need your help to ensure that our current students are as successful as our alumni. Please donate to our Student Travel Fund today and afford FSU anthropology students the opportunity to participate in professional conferences.
