I'm a sophomore looking into jobs that travel, and what colleges have classes that would
1. Let me get a cultural anthropology major
2. Let me get more than one major for the amount of class of one. (Meaning majors which are similar to each other, so they have a lot of the same classes)
3. Looking for jobs that travel, and where you live overseas.

Dear Alana -

Most colleges have a variety of study abroad programs in a variety of countries. In other words, there is no one country that the U.S. works with for study abroad. The best idea is to think about where you would like to go to study abroad and then look for programs in that area.

Also, you may also choose to study abroad on programs that are not from the college or university where you are planning to earn your degree. SIT (School for International Training) offers a variety of programs in many different areas for undergraduate students. You can get an idea of the variety of programs by going to https://studyabroad.sit.edu/. Middlebury College also hosts not only its own students but also those earning degrees at other institutions in its study abroad programs.

1. Most colleges offer cultural anthropology degrees. There are too many to list here. Check with the colleges that you are interested in.

2. Many students at many colleges have double majors. Inquire at the colleges you are interested in about this possibility. They do not have to be similar majors. There are also possibilities to add a minor - perhaps a language.


3. Think about the Peace Corps after college for working abroad. This often leads to international jobs in the long run. Many Peace Corps alumni work for companies with international operations or for non-governmental organizations that help improve the lives of people outside the U.S. Most large corporations have international operations and may send employees abroad to live and work.

Caroline’s Answer

Hi!

I don't think there is a specific country, however there are countries that are more popular to study abroad in than others. I know the UK, Spain, and Italy were probably the most popular at my school. Most colleges will let you see the classes required for each major on their websites, so you could do some research that way. As far as jobs, you could consider teaching in a foreign country for a few months or a year (even though you don't study teaching). I majored in business and was able to take some time after graduation to teach English abroad even though I had no background in teaching. It was the most amazing experience and I would 100% recommend! I taught through a program I found online - you can easily do a quick google search and find tons of teach abroad programs all over the globe!

Good luck!
