The Department of Anthropology provides numerous opportunities for students to hone career-related skills, become more involved with their communities, engage in unique experiences, and explore the world locally and globally. Many of these opportunities integrate academics with real-world and on-the-job experience.
- Students can participate in research, either on their own original projects or assisting on faculty-led projects.
- The department offers field schools during summer session (which are required for the BS degree).
- Internships, both on- or off-campus, may also be set up on an individual basis with faculty supervision for academic credit.
- Faculty in the department have led travel study courses (in some cases in conjunction with field schools) and we will work with students to facilitate semester-long study abroad or other travel experiences.
- We also offer resources to assist graduates with employment or pursuing graduate degrees.
