Anthropology Double Dawgs Program

Training in Anthropology provides students with critical, creative, and globally-based thinking skills that prepare them for a variety of careers in the 21st century. Our dual A.B./M.A. program combines the value of the anthropological approach of our A.B. program with specialized training in the M.A. program in Ecological and Environmental Anthropology. An M.A. degree in Anthropology can provide skills that will be valued in an increasingly globalized world, such as engaging with a diverse workforce as well as analytic, research, and collaboration skills. These skills can also lead to a wide range of career options in education, business, research, industry, and public service as well as providing a research foundation for doctoral training.

anthropology ab/public health mph (epidemiology)(non-thesis)

The College of Public Health had an 81% placement rate for the MPH class of 2021. Graduates with an MPH go on to work in federal and state agencies as well as non-profit organizations, and consulting firms. Roughly 17% of graduating students pursue further advanced degree programs such as medical or doctoral programs. The top graduate schools for our MPH Alumni include medical programs at Augusta University, Emory University, and Wake Forest University, as well as academic programs at the University of Georgia.

Top employers include Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, University System of Georgia, Georgia Department of Public Health, Georgia Institute of Technology, Emory University, United States Department of Health and Human Service, and Hospital Systems (to name a few). Our expectation is that the Double Dawgs pathway will provide a clear step towards careers in agencies focused on preventive efforts in target populations (i.e. women and minorities, disenfranchised populations, families, school age or aging populations, incarcerated populations, urban and rural populations, high risk groups for disease or disability). A few fields that will be new opportunities for our pathway graduates include data management specialists, data analysts, research specialists, consultants, and coordinators of public health research or programs.
