In our Anthropology and Archaeological Studies programs, we know that our students learn best by doing.

Our students may find themselves curating a new exhibit in the department’s Weaver Museum, analyzing bones and fossil casts in our Biological Anthropology lab, working closely with a local non-profit to help them better serve their clients, cataloging and reconstructing artifacts, or digging in our mock excavation unit.

Every year we offer an archaeology field school that allows our students to get to know what an archaeological excavation is really like. And our department’s focus on experimental archaeology allows students to make and use ancient tools to better understand the lifeways of the past peoples they are studying.
