Field Schools

Field courses provide real-world experience and hone applied skills, and significantly expand graduate school and career opportunities. The Department of Anthropology regularly offers field schools in archaeology and cultural anthropology/ethnography during summer sessions. For a BS degree in Anthropology, 6 credits of field school is required. However, students pursuing a BA degree can also participate in field courses for 3 to 6 credits. Majors and graduate students in other programs may also take anthropology field school courses, and majors may take multiple field courses or repeat them for credit (typically as Independent Study) with the instructor's permission.
