2017 Major: Evolutionary Anthropology (concentration in Anatomy and Paleoanthropology); minors in Biology and Chemistry
"'EvAnth' was a great way for me to gain exposure to one of my favorite parts of biology - anatomy. Between the primary anatomy, human body and human osteology courses, I became familiar with many of the topics covered throughout the first two years of medical school. In a way, it allowed me to at least become comfortable with the breadth of anatomy that can often be overwhelming in medical school. Lastly, applying into plastic surgery, a heavily speciality focused heavily on reconstruction, having an understanding of the evolutionary underpinnings of anatomical structures has given me a niche perspective on how to approach reconstructive problems."
"I think with most majors, the breadth and scope of the major is quite large. I would say find what you are interested in and really run with it. Having a real niche understanding in one area in evolutionary anthropology (aside from the unique major already) can help you stand out if you are planning on pursuing related graduate programs."
