In the field of anthropology, is your choice of pre-graduate school a large factor in job selection, and if so, is a state college good enough or is a top-twenty school standard?
I’m a high school senior and I’m still unsure of where I’m going to go to college. I had assumed I would go to a local state college, but then I started looking into potential job opportunities in my chosen field. I noticed many professors, museum curators, and travel researchers graduated from a top-twenty school even for their BA.
When I attempt research into other anthropological fields, I often either get short articles or feel like all my questions haven’t been answered. Would someone with more insight into the field please give me some hints on the direction I should take with college selection and narrowed major as well as additional professions where I will be able to use my major?
