Faculty-led Field Schools and Study Abroad Opportunities

Faculty-led field school and short-term study abroad programs provide students with the opportunity to apply anthropological knowledge in a new setting, and in some instances, in a different country. Going on a field school trip or taking a short-term study abroad course gives you the chance to conduct research and to learn side-by-side with your professors in small groups.

For Summer 2018, anthropology faculty have different opportunities for you choose from. Plan early. Contact the professor organizing a particular program for more information. Please check this page often for any changes to our field school and short-term study abroad program information.
