applied anthropology

I am curious as to how many undergraduate programs
require an applied anthropology course. Since about there are about
35 more BA's in anthropology given for every MA in anthropology,
most anthro majors never go on to complete graduate training in
anthropology. Should they be given a basic course early in their
undergraduate programs letting them know what options there might
be in the future for a non-academic job?

Why is it that when an engineer graduates, s/he is called an
engineer? However, when an undergraduate anthro student
graduates, s/he is not an anthropologist? What qualifications define
an anthropologist? Was E.B.Tylor an anthropologist?
