I just recently graduated with my Bachelor of Science in Anthropology from Southern Oregon University. At my university, our anthropology skills were tested not only in academic environments, but through physical and social environments as well. We were taught how to perform primary research, conduct social experiments, and simply conduct participant observation with the intention of making ethnographic observations. I was also taught to work in multiple fields of anthropology including primarily: cultural, archaeological, and linguistic.
While studying anthropology in my undergraduate anthropology program, I focused primarily on archaeology. I studied under a local archaeologist who ran an archaeology lab out of the school. I worked in this lab multiple times, and even went on archaeological digs with the school. I was taught how to physically, legally, and in reality understand and practice archaeology in the public realm.
While working on a degree with a social science background, I took as many diverse classes as possible. Many of these classes were within the sociology cohort, with the premise of further understanding the social constructs which we regularly operate and live under. The purpose of these sociology courses helped me to become a more self aware and critical individual. Sociological concepts were even wrapped up into my degree program of anthropology, where we used the construct of social spheres as places to understand humans in context.
