It can be tough to get “real world” experience before you hit the real world head-on after graduation. Especially when your field of choice includes extensive research, artifacts that are difficult to come by, and hands-on work that often has to be on-site.
This becomes even more difficult when you’re studying anthropology in a very urban setting like Fort Wayne.
However difficult, anthropology is (we assume) the field you want to study. To get a career in just about anything anymore, you need experience, so you need all the opportunities and tools your university can provide.
Richard Sutter, Ph.D.—IPFW’s Department of Anthropology chair—sat down with us to discuss how you can go about getting this experience and gain that worldly experience you need without leaving Fort Wayne’s city limits.
