Ahead of the curve
An Anthropology degree shows that you not only have an awareness, but also an understanding, of other cultures. This is increasingly important in today's global environment, and will put you ahead of others in the job market who do not understand how and why cultures differ. An Anthropology degree makes you adaptable to new jobs and people, a very attractive skill to potential employers.
Hands-on experience — right away
Unlike other programs, we introduce students to research opportunities and field work almost immediately. Faculty-student collaborations include working in on-campus laboratories and at multiple field sites. For example, archeology major Kylie Holmes was able to participate in a dig during her first month at UIndy.
A New World focus
Many archeology programs concentrate on Old World topics, such as classical archeology. The UIndy archeology program, however, is one of only a few in the United States and Canda to focus on New World archeology, which better prepares students for the job market or graduate school.
