Types of Field Projects Offered
Students can work in the field or in the lab with our scholars helping conduct research internationally or here in California. It is important to gain hands-on experience doing archaeology. By contributing directly to active research projects students become confident future scientists and leaders.
Cultural and Applied Anthropology
Students also conduct independent study projects with the Center for Applied Anthropology.
Cultural and applied anthropology projects are also taking place in the local community, at the College, and internationally.
Field opportunities are a very important part of anthropology and teach the process of doing anthropology, but there is also a heavy emphasis on the laboratory component of these research projects. The students take part in every facet of our ongoing research and help guide the investigations by conducting their own research.
