DVD/NAPA: Anthropologists at Work: Careers Making a Difference  © 1993 

 What does an anthropologist do? Popular images contribute to our understanding of anthropologists excavating ancient ruins and studying small, remote tribes in foreign lands.  Yet these images are but a glimpse of the type of careers that now range across the spectrum of humanity -- exploring the physical and cultural realities of all human populations. In fact, nearly one third of new Ph.D. anthropologists and the majority of new M.A. graduates find employment outside of academia.
Anthropologists at Work captures anthropologists working at home and abroad in diverse settings: from government and human services to manufacturing and retail industries; conducting research; implementing policy; teaching and providing expertise in the areas of health, development, education and the corporate world! Running Time: 40 minutes
