Social Science and Anthropology

Social Sciences and Anthropology deals with different aspects of humans within the past and present societies and it gives a systematic structure to understanding the social settings of well-being. Social Anthropology, Cultural Anthropology, Medical Anthropology are different branches of Anthropology. Therapeutic Anthropology is the investigation of how well-being and ailment are formed, experienced, and comprehended in light of worldwide, authentic, and political powers. For the past 20 years, cultural anthropology accounted for an average 50% of new PhDs awarded in the U.S.; archaeology - 30%; biological/physical = 10%; linguistic anthropology - 3%; applied/other - 7%. The figures for 1994-95 are, respectively, 52%, 24%, 10%, 1% and 12%. In the early 1970s, 74% of PhDs took jobs in academic departments of anthropology (13% took jobs in research centers and other academic departments; 13% took nonacademic jobs. From the mid-1970s through 1990, the percent taking jobs in anthropology departments dropped to 38% (21% took jobs in research centers and other academic departments; 41% took nonacademic jobs). By the year 1995, approximately 11,000 men and women (representing 0.004% of the population) had received a doctorate in anthropology. By the year 2025--using the assumptions noted above--straight-line forecasting yields a grand total of 12,000 researchers awarded anthropology PhDs--1,000 more than today. If the value of a commodity is determined by its scarcity alone, future anthropologists will be valued indeed. More updates can be found at Social Sciences Conferences.
