Selected Topics in Social Anthropology: Careers in Anthropology
Fall 2023 - I learned a ton about career pathways for anthropology grads and career skills in general! Professor Loyd is enthusiastic and cares about her students. Every guest lecturer was insightful and eager to share their career stories with us, especially how they tie in anthropology. We were always encouraged to ask them questions. The assignments themselves are mostly self reflections or career preparation activities graded on completion. Overall, it was a genuinely great class. Some downsides are that the class itself lasts three hours straight every week, and Prof Loyd tends to ramble, which can make her a bit difficult to follow. Nonetheless, the pros outweigh the cons. I would still recommend this course because it's a fantastic way to learn about the possibilities you have with an anthropology degree. Definitely take it if you have the chance!
