Abstract Anthropology has never had an organizing framework or template for teaching an agreed-upon set of courses, a sequence in which those courses should be offered, or the knowledge, skills, and experiences that should be acquired in those courses. Instead, teaching has been left up to individual instructors. Significant changes in the job market for graduates, involving a decrease in academic opportunities and the growth of opportunities in industry, non-profits, and government, have led to a reconceptualization of how and what we teach to prepare students for successful careers. With that in mind, we draw on recent work by the Anthropology Career Readiness Network, as well as earlier research, to construct a framework for curriculum change focused on bringing issues of practice and application into our teaching. We believe this framework will improve the career readiness of all students, whether they intend to become academics or practitioners.
