Major: Anthropology (This Major's Salary over time)
I wanted to find a physical anthropology program that supported what I was interested and would allow me to become a professor in the future. The program at Colorado State is not constructed for that. Several members of the faculty do not believe the department should have a doctoral program, therefore their passive aggressive and devastating comments or contributions to the studies conducted by the doctoral students are very damaging. Not only to their progress, but also their psyche. My interactions with the cultural anthropology staff has been the worst. They place judgement on everyone, gossip and discourage individuality.

My experiences with all of the courses in the department have been very disappointing. Professors do not teach, they have students teach for them. Their expectations are perfection with every submission and do not allow for growth or foster learning. Students who have taken classes in the department from others have also made comment that their experience is very disappointing compared with their own departments. Sociology, public health and human dimensions in natural resources have voiced that anthropology courses are the most difficult and unrewarding classes in their plan.

My advice is that for any student considering a doctoral degree in anthropology at Colorado State deeply consider what sacrifices they are willing to make of their mental health to complete a degree.
