Applied anthropology is using anthropology to solve problems in a
non-academic environment; basic anthropology is teaching anthropology. I
wanted to become an anthropologist as an undergraduate when I took my
first anthropology course. I finally obtained my doctorate in
anthropology 29 years after I received my B.A. My computer doesn't show
me the rest of your questions, so I can't answer them. .
