Today's anthropologists do not just work in faraway places. Anthropologists work in a surprising array of fields and careers. Ann Dunham, the mother of Barack Obama
(44th President of the United States), was an Anthropologist! Anthropologists work in educational institutions, businesses, all levels of government, communications fields, nonprofit organizations, museums, disaster areas, research institutes, and more. Whatever their field of choice, anthropologists can change the way we view and interact with our world. There are many exciting areas of anthropological study!
