What type of classes do I need to take in college to become a cultural anthropology major, and what colleges have that major?
I'm a sophomore in high school, and I'm thinking about becoming a missionary, diplomat, or a writer. I'm looking for advice on what classes that I need to take to achieve on this, and if there are colleges who have great study abroad programs. I want to study overseas in college. As well, how that relates to cultural anthropology.
For your career interests:
Missionary: Look into religious studies and theology programs.
Diplomat: Consider international relations or political science.
Writer: Strong writing skills are crucial; anthropology can provide cultural understanding.
Notable colleges with strong anthropology programs include Harvard, Stanford, and UC Berkeley. Research their programs and study abroad options to find the best fit for your goals.
I have guided many students from diverse cultures into the path they wish to follow.
UNISA offers some online learning with the option of attending lectures on Campus. There fees are reasonable, in addition you could learn from Overseas. Their curriculum is very broad, therefore I am sure you would find many subjects in the career path you wish to follow.
I would also recomend you research what groups you could attend locally, where you could maybe become involved in missionary work to see if this is the lifestyle you want to pursue.
I think once you have researched what colleges you could attend internationally, I would contact their Career guidance department for further guidance and subject selection.
Political science, International relations, History, Theology and Journalism are other subjects, you may wish to intergrate into your curriculum,
Once you have completed your degree and want to continue on towards your Masters, you would know by this time which direction you want to specialise. Please ensure though that you have all the background subjects covered before moving forward.
I would like to take this opportunity Alana, in wishing you the best in your future endeavours.
