Anthropology major, Museum Studies minor?

<p>What schools are best known for Anthropology?</p>

<p>I've heard UChicago's tops.</p>

<p>Doesn't matter, all the top 25 usnews schools and top 20 LACs are great. Anthro isn't one of the majors where "program rank" matters if you go to a top school. In fact I'd argue the non-anthro dept ranked LACs and LACy schools are the best.</p>

<p>Columbia, NYU, GWU, and Penn would be best for anthropology & museum studies. This does NOT exclude other schools, however, because it is not extremely difficult to get an internship at a major museum. </p>

<p>A lot of colleges are good in anthropology. Do you want a big/small school? Rural or urban? Extremely selective or average? Emphasis on a particular aspect of anthropology?</p>

<p>I'm too much of an average student to get into UChicago, Columbia, NYU, or Penn. My GPA is around a 3.2-3.3 and my SAT score is a 1300. </p>

<p>Big/small doesn't matter to me at all. I'd prefer the college to be in a place where there are museums (I suppose that would include most places), since I'd like to intern at one at some point. A not-as-selective college with good financial aid would be best. I think I'm going to focus on cultural anthropology.</p>

<p>You might want to look at Wheaton (MA), Lake Forest, Goucher...</p>

<p>Here's a website listing all/most anthropology departments that might be helpful as a starting point. </p>

<p><a href=""&gt;;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>Barnard, Bates, Smith, Brandeis, GWU, Boston U, Kalamazoo, Bryn Mawr, Rutgers, Skidmore, St. Mary's College of Maryland, Hamilton, Colgate, U Pitt, Bard, Michigan, Washington, U of the South, U Arizona, U Colorado-Boulder, Kenyon, U Maryland, Wisconsin, Sarah Lawrence, Macalester, Hampshire, and Grinnell are a just a few worth checking out.</p>

<p>In particular, I recommend you check out Beloit College in Wisconsin.</p>
