One of the courses that I want to feature on my Course Happenings Blog is my course entitled, “Professional Development Anthropology: ANTH 4501.” This is an undergraduate course offered to all undergraduates (freshman to seniors).
The major course objectives of this course are:
- To recognize what type of practical skills that you have acquired through your coursework.
- To recognize how these practical skills whether specializing in archaeology, cultural anthropology, biological anthropology, medical anthropology or other anthropology subspecialties can assist you in obtaining jobs that are based in the field of anthropology or not necessarily anthropologically-related.
- To research and learn about specific job opportunities and internships related to your area of interest.
- To provide an opportunity for various organizations at ECU to present information on pratical skill building strategies to you.
- To provide a forum for you to learn from other students about the practical skills that yu have acquired through your anthropological training.
Basically, what you get out of this course are real life discussions and real life practical skills that you can use to get a job or get ready for graduate school when you complete this course!
Here are a couple of pictures from the course.
