Field schools are an exciting opportunity for students to get out of the classroom, to learn new skills, and to get an immersive experience in a different culture. There are field schools available that focus on all of the disciplines within anthropology, including archaeology, ethnology, bioarchaeology, primatology, paleoanthropology, ethnomusicology, as well as related disciplines like museum studies and conservation science. Field school announcements and notifications are regularly distributed to the Anthropology list-serve as well as being posted in the department. If you are interested in attending a field school, please consult with your Anthropology faculty advisor.
