Forensic Anthropology- If You Like Biological sciences, history, anthropology and archeology, forensic anthropology may be right for you. The major duties of this position are helping the (Medical Examiner) or coroner with the recovery and identification of human remains. This work includes estimating biological profile's, sex, height, race, ect.) of skeletal remains and assessing the causes of skeletal trauma. You May have to visit an internment site, help excavate it, and examine tissue or skeletal remains for the purpose of identifying the deceased person and helping to determine the probable time and cause of death.

Being a forensic Anthropologist requires a great deal of educational preparation. You need a bachelor's Degree in a subject Such as Chemistry, Biology, Anatomy, Physiology, or Anthropology, and a Grauate Degree, Preferably a doctorate in anthropology or human biology. You need a PhD and at least three years of experience in forensic anthropology when seeking board certification in the field.

Although you may be able to work in the field with fewer credentials, having the postgraduate education makes you a more attractive candidate. Most forensic Anthropologists work at universities and serve as consultants to MEs and the courts.

Most FBI agents get their professional academic training (engineering, law school, accounting degree, etc.) first, then apply to become a special agent. Whether you were hired or not would depend on the FBI's need for a forensic anthropologist or whatever other skills you had, as well as meeting their basic requirements.
