Our Applied Anthropology Laboratories provides cultural resource management service for public and private agencies. Since it was established in 1978, the lab has grown to include academic research, public education, and student involvement.
Anthropology is best learned in the field, which means you’ll have plenty of opportunities to get out of the classroom and explore the world. Our field study experiences, study abroad programs, and internships offer excellent ways to gain experience outside the classroom. And our student organizations will let you better get to know our and your faculty and classmates.
Even after graduation, you’ll still have plenty of opportunities to stay involved with our department through annual gatherings, networking opportunities, and more.
