The Anthropology Major’s teaching and learning is innovative and engaged. Many courses are engaged classes that go beyond the standard teaching and walls of the classroom and involve hands on learning or campus and community collaborations including Global Bodies; Decolonizing Collections; Ethnography in Action; Comics, Cartoons, and Communicating Anthropology; Anatomy of the Human Body; Building Solidarity Economies; and Grassroots Community Organizing.
We offer archaeological field schools to students who are interested in archaeology we have two in the summer typically, one that works with the Emily Dickinson museum another that is focused on forensic anthropology. And, there’s lots of opportunities, to gain lab experience that happens in classrooms, in relation to faculty research, or through independent studies.
There is a lot of community and support in the department through a vibrant undergraduate Anthropology Club, through regular informal department gatherings like Anthropology Tea Time and our Full Moon Walks, as well as special events like our Fall Disco Costume Rollerskating Parties.
