A degree in Anthropology can do more than prepare you for a job; it can open new social worlds that may fascinate and transform you. It can sensitize you to cultural difference in a "global society," enable you to go beyond the headlines in your understanding of local and world affairs, give you insight into and tolerance for social differences like race, class, gender, disability, and sexuality. Understanding your world is the first step towards changing it.
