Hands on Learning
The anthropology department faculty pursue a wide variety of topics and research areas in every corner of the world. Each year, numerous opportunities are available for collaborative research, field work, and faculty sponsored independent research for undergraduates.
A number of grants are available for student research to support both independent work and collaboration with faculty. Past research grants have been used to pursue an investigation of Puebloan architecture at Bandelier National Monument and Chaco Canyon National Historical Park in New Mexico, and efficient methods of cleaning soft tissue from long bones.
