Anthropology Internship & Study Abroad
Internships may be arranged to work with scholars at the Field Museum of Natural History, the Chicago Historical Society and other cultural institutions in the area. Participation in study abroad programs, especially the Bahamas program and the Athens program, is strongly encouraged. From time to time, students work with individual faculty members on summer research grants funded by the college.
Urban Archaeological Field School
The department offers a program in urban community archaeology twice a year. This program offers eight credits, including fulfillment of the archaeological methods course (ANT 202) in the core sequence and the Historical Archaeology of Chicago (ANT 254) course in the material culture category of topical courses. All majors and archaeology minors are strongly encouraged to fulfill these requirements in the field school. For those who are not able to attend the field school, the archaeological methods must be made up independently.
