Real-World Experience

Anthropology is the study of humans and human culture; as a result, our department highly encourages students to make real-world connections between their studies and their communities. The anthropology department offers a variety of ways for students to get involved.

  • Field Schools
    Our field schools are strongly recommended for anthropology students with a specific interest in archaeology. The field schools provide students with hands-on experience working in the field and with excavations.
  • Internships
    Our internship course enables students to get hands-on experience working in an anthropology lab. This experience prepares students for a number of potential future careers.
  • Independent Study
    We encourage students to pursue their own interests and projects. Take your education into your own hands and design and carry out your own research with the guidance of a faculty member.
