Study Abroad

The Department of Anthropology encourages our majors and minors to participate in international travel and research whenever possible through study abroad programs based on your research interests. In addition, there are also two particularly strong study abroad programs that have excellent anthropology and archaeology departments: Dublin and Perth. For these two programs only, students will be allowed to use nine credits towards their anthropology major or minor, rather than the usual six credits.

In addition, we have designated one course in each program as fulfilling a Fundamentals requirement:

  • Dublin: ANTH 34022 Exploring Archaeology (equivalent to ANTH 20202)
  • Perth: ANTH 34034 Being Human: Culture, Identity, and Society (equivalent to ANTH 20203)

How to prepare to study abroad

All students who plan to study abroad must visit with their advising dean in the Arts and Letters Office of Undergraduate Studies (104 O'Shaughnessy). Students must call their advising dean's office no later than Friday, September 23rd to schedule an appointment. Students who do not meet with a dean will not be approved to study abroad, so please plan accordingly.

Please note: The Department will not evaluate a course for anthropology credit if:

  • A syllabus or equivalent is not provided; and
  • A course description is not provided
