Fieldwork and Research Opportunities

The anthropology program regularly sponsors field schools in archaeology and cultural anthropology. These programs are locally based and are accessible to commuters as well as on-campus students. Occasional opportunities for fieldwork abroad are also available. Postfield independent research opportunities are available through individual faculty and the anthropology lab, which houses a collection of more than 200,000 artifacts from more than 200 archaeological and historic sites. Students interested in fieldwork should contact the department.
