To complement UVM’s Career Center’s services, the Anthropology Department faculty provide students with individual advising. We also offer ANTH 205 Senior Proseminar in Anthropopgy, which is designed to be taken in conjunction with any 200-level class. This capstone pro-seminar in Anthropology provide a forum for majors to build and package anthropological skill sets and to identify, explore, and plan for future educational and career opportunities.
