Student Opportunities

Anthropology students together during welcome week

The Department of Anthropology encourages students to study humanity beyond the classroom through independent research (including senior theses and laboratory research), internships, study abroad, the Anthropology Club, the Lamda Alpha honor society, the undergraduate journal, and through community advocacy.

To support your anthropological research, projects, and publications, many funding opportunities and field schools are available and the department offers five annual awards to encourage the full exploration of your anthropological interests.

As a major or minor, you will automatically receive the weekly Anthropology Opportunities Digest for current courses, events, internships, field schools, funding, and opportunities to work with ND anthropology professors on their current research. If you aren't already a major or minor, please feel free to email Prof. Eric Haanstad to subscribe to the digest.

Globally Engaged Citizens

Notre Dame’s Globally Engaged Citizens program rewards the learning and experiences you are already engaging in — and will stand out on your resume and show employers and graduate schools that you’re prepared to be a global citizen.

Students in any college or school can earn the certificate by taking two classes and participating in cultural activities on and off campus. You may already be well on your way to meeting the requirements.
