Can I contact working anthropologists who have received their degree from ASU?
There are ASU Anthropology Alumni that are available to answer career questions. Use the CLASWorks Contact for more information.

Where do I get my faculty mentor in Anthropology?
There is currently no formal Faculty Mentor program. Students are encouraged to contact faculty whose research interests match their own. Make an appointment during faculty office hours. All Anthropology faculty set aside regular officer hours to interact with students and prospective majors. Students are encouraged to take opportunities to discuss their interests and goals with faculty outside the normal classroom setting. Office hours are posted in the Anthropology Building on a bulletin board outside the Department Office. (Link to Faculty web Pages).
