While we’ll teach you the nuts and bolts of your major, anthropology is best learned when you can get your hands dirty and explore what’s not found in textbooks.
Field study and study abroad opportunities are the best way for you to take what you’ve learned in the classroom and apply it to real-life situations. You can travel to historic parts of the Southwest, South Africa, and Romania. These trips are definitely a life-changing experience.
In addition to study abroad, some of our students take advantage of internship opportunities. Internships are a way to get your foot in the door and boost your résumé. We’ll help you find a place that may interest you.
We also encourage you to take some time and meet even more people with your same interests by joining our student organizations. Four organizations are connected to our department, and there are a host of others across the campus.
Stay up-to-date with us by checking our calendars often.
