Anthropology students can get hands-on research experience in ethnography with the undergraduate Ethnographic Field School (ANTH 480) or in archaeology with the Archaeological Field Schools (ARCL 306). The field schools are open to all students.
For both field schools, undergraduates should contact the Department in February for the current year’s offerings or check current calendar listings for field school information.
Approved students can take 6 credits of ANTH 449 as a directed research honours project.
