Anthropology Department

Resources for Anthropology Seniors

Check out these resources for planning your senior year as an anthropology major, including navigating the senior thesis process and imagining life beyond Reed.

Research in anthropology can include either or both library/archival work and ethnographic research. See these links for resources and guidelines for both. Work closely with your Department advisers and with our social science librarians as you plan your thesis project.

Your anthropology training can inform anything you might want to pursue in your life beyond Reed. Stop by the Center for Life Beyond Reed to check out their resources and consult with advisers there. While the Department has a long history of illustrious anthropology alumni who have gone on to do graduate work in anthropology and related fields, most Reed anthropology alumni do not go on to graduate school but take up a wide variety of career paths. See these links for thinking about both career and graduate school possibilities.
