Field Schools + Field Programs
Our field school and field program courses are designed to allow you to travel and work with a faculty member to participate in field research. You will gain valuable hands-on experience in archaeological digs, ethnographic research, and other anthropological areas. Different field school and field program experiences are offered each summer.
Recent field experiences have included:
- Wyoming: “Exploring Social and Historical Landscapes of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem,” Dr. Laura Scheiber
- Illinois: “Discovering Cahokia’s Religion APP,” Dr. Susan Alt
- Mexico: “Anthropology Field Program in Oaxaca”
