Time tabling Michaelmas Term 2000 Content This module looks at some of the different ways in which anthropology can be applied. For example, it considers the role of the anthropologist as 'cultural translator', mediator or advocate for groups involved in conflicts over land rights, environmental problems or political differences. It also examines the use of anthropological research in providing policy advice to governments and other institutions.
Part of the module will focus on feminist perspectives and approaches in development studies. Theoretical and methodological issues, as well as regional differences, will be examined within the frameworks of anthropology, history, cultural studies, economics, politics and international relations.

Program Description The Applied Anthropology Emphasis prepares students to use anthropological knowledge to address pressing human problems in careers outside the university. Through course work and related internships, students will gain a better understanding of how anthropological knowledge and skills can be used practically in occupations related to health and medicine, international development, environment, government, business and education, immigration, and poverty. Rationale Many of our graduates are interested in pursuing careers that will allow them to apply their anthropological expertise and experience to enhance institutional and community life. This emphasis program will give students a solid, well-rounded academic training in anthropological theory and methods as well as the opportunity to develop a professional identity as a practicing anthropologist through internships or other work- or research-related experiences. Three important web sites to explore are: Society for Applied Anthropology ( and the National Association for the Practice of Anthropology ( A great source of information about practicing anthropology, graduate programs in applied anthropology, internships, jobs, etc. can be found at the Applied Anthropology Computer Network (

46. Applied Anthropology :: Anthropology Department
The ability to work in inter and multi-disciplinary settings is a major aspect ofcontemporary applied anthropology – and a central feature of our graduate
A pplied Anthropology Anthropologists have long applied their knowledge, skills and methods to meet the diverse needs of communities, indigenous peoples, public agencies from the local to the global levels, non-profit and non-government organizations, and business. Applying anthropology involves combining theory, ethnographic insight, and methodological expertise towards practical ends. In doing so, anthropologists bear in mind their ethical obligations to the communities in which they work, as well as their obligations to the entities or groups that they are working with. The ability to work in inter- and multi-disciplinary settings is a major aspect of contemporary applied anthropology – and a central feature of our graduate program in Anthropology within the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs . Applied anthropologists practice their craft in fields as diverse as law, medicine, health care, agriculture, forestry, health, environmental and social planning, tourism, cultural resource management (including archaeological sites), indigenous rights, forestry, conflict management, social services, and communications. Some of the many roles assumed by applied anthropologists include administrator, policy or social analyst, program or project evaluator, planner, project designer, researcher, and trainer. Faculty members in our department have carried out applied assignments and applied-oriented research in a number of countries, including the United States, Egypt, Peru, India, Ghana, Bolivia, Brazil, Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia, Jamaica, the Virgin Islands, and Canada for entities ranging from the First Nations to the United Nations. For example, faculty members have recently worked on issues such as food security, community health care, natural resource conflicts, micro-credit, relocation, and election monitoring. What unites our work is a shared vision of anthropology that seeks to contribute to local empowerment through the fostering of broadly based participatory processes.

NAPA Bulletin #19 Description Contents Abstract Access ... ENTER DESCRIPTION This online NAPA Bulletin investigates the use of the Internet as a medium for applied social science applications, primarily as a communication tool within applied anthropology. The Bulletin endeavors to guide readers in the effective, ethical and efficient use of the Internet. The Bulletin is primarily for those who have hesitated to engage the Internet before. Background theories and writings are noted, relevant issues are presented, and "mini-case studies" are offered. The World Wide Web is featured prominently, and a step by step guide to creating an efficient and effective Web site is included. The intent is to offer a supplemental resource to the scores of Web-building guides already available, and as a guide for optimum use. While reasonably comprehensive, this Bulletin is an introductory resource, and perhaps a catalyst for greater Internet utilization. It is hoped that enough information is presented to facilitate your own application of the Internet, and that future documents will focus more narrowly on specific topics and applications. While the bulk of references are from applied anthropology, this publication is general enough to be of relevance to any applied or practicing social scientist. Comments and contributions are welcome. Periodic revisions are planned and will incorporate submissions and updates. An electronic bulletin board will allow readers to post information, questions and suggestions directly to peers.

Applied Anthropology Track
(Graduate Level)
In part, of course, this shift simply reflects the fact that the groups traditionally examined by anthropologists have themselves increasingly become Westernized, industrialized and urbanized. On a more basic level, however, it results from our growing realization that the uniquely anthropological perspectives of comparativism, holism, cultural relativism and participant observation (the study of local communities while resident among their peoples) have much to contribute to the solution of contemporary problems. As A. L. Kroeber noted, anthropology has studied the so-called primitives (because no other discipline would take them seriously), but it has always also wished to understand "...ourselves, here, now, at home." This is still more the case at the present time. As it enters the twenty-first century, anthropology, as ever in the past, intends to be the science of humanity and culture where we are today With this in mind, the Department of Anthropology has entered into a cooperative arrangement with the University's College of Urban and Public Affairs to provide an Applied Urban Anthropology track within the Master of Science in Urban Studies. The program allows students to gain significant background in applied anthropology (four courses and an anthropologically focused thesis) while earning the degree. Courses include applications of both social anthropology, and of cultural resource management and preservation archaeology, involving both historic and prehistoric settings.

Email: Anthropologists have long been concerned with the practical applications of their research. For academic anthropologists, this concern has manifested itself most often in advocacy on behalf of the people they study, ranging from the critique of development projects in the Third World to testimony on behalf of Indian tribes seeking Federal acknowledgment. Anthropologists have contributed to many of the public policy debates that have divided American society, including school desegregation, welfare reform and urban development. The application of anthropological methods and knowledge outside of the academy is growing rapidly. Indeed, most anthropologists today work outside academe. Areas where anthropological training is important include contract archaeology, museums, forensic anthropology, evaluation of welfare reform, foreign aid projects, public health initiatives, community organizing and advocacy. There is a rapidly growing trend to hire anthropologists in private business, especially in the technology sector where anthropologists work on projects ranging from product design and the work environment to market research. This course will examine the history, theory and practice of anthropology as an applied research science. Students will develop their own research projects, gaining practical experience with applied anthropology's concepts and methods. We will also discuss the questions applied research raises for anthropologists. Does the trust relationship established in fieldwork raise particular ethical concerns in applied research? Should anthropologists always act as advocates on behalf of the people they study? How can we adapt our long-term research methods to the short-term contexts in which many applied researchers work?

Advisor: Dr. James Loucky

Applied Anthropology draws on the methods and perspectives of Anthropology and applies them in an effort to alleviate current social, economic, and technological problems. Applied anthropologists work in many fields, both in the United States and throughout the world. They work in such diverse areas as the Bureau of Indian Affairs, ESL (English as a second language) and other teaching programs; various domestic and international development agencies; health care, social and human services; agriculture and forestry; and various business enterprises.
There are three especially active areas of applied Anthropology today: medicine, education, and cultural resources management. Delivery of health services, nutrition, concepts of health and illness, and the hospital as a social setting is all studied by anthropologists in the same manner they study a tribal or peasant society. Likewise, the school room, the school system, and the structure of education can be investigated in the traditional manner of fieldwork, contextual analysis, and cross-cultural comparison. Cultural resources management, spurred by state and federal legislation, employs cultural anthropologist and archaeologists to assist in the preservation, restoration, and salvage of archaeological resources. They are in the demand as consultants to engineering firms that must assess the impact of proposed construction projects on cultural resources, both living and archaeological.

MA Program Requirements
The Masters in applied anthropology at present requires 33 hours of course work (including thesis or practicum). Those who choose to write an MA report (Anth 909) or thesis (Anth 910) in applied anthropology will receive a certificate indicating this specialty. The current core course requirement for the MA is 12 units, comprised of one 3-unit course from each of the four fields. The MA student must take the following theory and methodology courses in applied anthropology:
  • Anth 595FHistory and Theory in Applied Anthropology
  • Anth 595DMixed Methods in Applied Social Science Research
  • Anth 607Anthropological Research Methods and Design
Applied MA students must take 15 additional supporting units in areas relating to their specialization. The applied program will provide a number of course offerings in medical anthropology, culture and education, development, natural resources and environment policy, nutrition, organizational culture, women in development, and agriculture and food security. These courses are chosen in conjunction with the student's advisor. Courses in outside departments such as agricultural economics, political science, geography, renewable natural resources, and education may be appropriate to these specializations. Students may elect to write a master's thesis or report (3 units) . Since the applied MA prepares students for professional employment a practicum or internship (3 units included in 15 unit elective limit) may be completed in lieu of the masters report or thesis. A final oral examination for the MA is customary in this department with no credit units allowed.

The Applied Anthropology Program
Goal of the Program
Teaching and training of applied anthropology at The University of Arizona is designed to prepare graduates to use their anthropological skills in applied work situations and to fill expanding professional positions in today's marketplace. The goal of the applied program is to produce anthropologists with the necessary skills to do applied research, work in policy-making positions, and train students in conventional academic settings.
Employment Opportunities for Applied Anthropologists
Applied anthropologists are employed in universities in many departments, but they also developed careers in a wide variety of public and private fields. Areas of employment require skills of the anthropologists as researcher, writer, consultant, cultural interpreter, evaluator, spokesperson (advocate), staff advisor, policy scientist, policy maker, organization or systems analyst, administrator, and teacher. Places of employment include private sector consulting firms, government and international agencies, businesses and corporations, hospitals, health agencies, ethnic groups, and foundations. These areas of employment have expanded rapidly over the last decade and will continue to outpace conventional academic employment opportunity. The emerging fields of specialization within applied anthropology include: medical, international and rural development, agriculture and natural resource management, women in development education nursing#, public health and nutrition, and workplace organization. Specializations with growing potential include biodiversity and environmental sustainability.
