Undergraduate Programs - Advanced Information
Studying in Anthropology at CUA
Undergraduate students have opportunities to participate in archaeological and other research projects where they gain first-hand acquaintance with the interpretation of data in the field. In addition to faculty projects, the department keeps information on field schools and opportunities for study abroad. The department has ties to the Smithsonian Institution, the National Gallery of Art, with research and public policy organizations in Washington, and can identify internships for students and unique opportunities available through the American Anthropological Association, the Society for American Archeology and the Washington Association of Professional Anthropologists located here.
* The American Anthropological Association meets every third year in Washington, providing special opportunities for students that include free admission for student workers.
