Anthropology Careers Day

Anthropology faculty and alumni sponsor Anthropology Careers Day each April to inform students about job possibilities after attaining a degree in the program.  The day features speakers on anthropology and archeology along with an online video presentation and handouts about careers in those fields.  And, of course, lots of free food.

The annual event is free and open to the public and happens in less than two months. The date for the 2014 Careers Day is Friday, April 25, from 3-5 pm, in 110 Landrum.

So, to get you in the mood, here are some more famous people who were anthropology majors:

Did you know that celebrity chefs Rick Bayless and Giada de Laurentis were anthropology majors?  In the area of crime fighting, New York City police officer Frank Serpico, immortalized in the Al Pacino film Serpico, was an anthropology major.  Even McGruff, the Crime Dog (as played by NKU anthropology alumnus Carl Agner of the nearby Florence, Kentucky Police Force), is an anthropologist.  But the real popularity of anthropology can be demonstrated by the fact that on the preschool educational cartoon show, Dora, the Explorer, Dora's mother is an archaeologist.

So, is there anything you cannot do with an anthropology major?
