Geneva Morley on “Why Anthropology?”

Geneva Morley (Anthropology, Class of 2016)

Geneva Morley headshotI was initially drawn to Anthropology because I am extremely interested how people function within the world.  I was previously interested in Psychology, and have always had a knack for being able to understand and empathize with people very easily, and I entered into college believing that I was destined to become a therapist or help people in a very individualistic way.  I was then lucky enough to take a cultural anthropology course at the beginning of my sophomore year, where I realized that although the individual and the issues within the conscious and unconscious of one’s mind are extremely relevant and pertinent to their wellbeing, the society around them is arguably just as pertinent, and this is what anthropology aims to address as a discipline.
