Over the past four decades, the Department of Anthropology has successfully transformed hundreds of B.A., M.A., and Ph.D. students into valued alumni. These graduates have gone on to successful careers in academia, public service, and the private sector.
As of October 2018, USF has conferred 523 graduate degrees in Applied Anthropology (188 PhD and 335 MA). MA graduates typically obtain jobs in anthropology-related professions, in the private consulting sector, for government programs (often in health-care fields) or in the public sector (museums, teaching, public education, social services etc.). PhD graduates move into academia, research positions for government agencies, or in a variety of other areas.
