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 a number of particularly strong study abroad programs that have excellent anthropology, archaeology, and medical anthropology departments including Dublin, Perth, and Puebla. For these programs, 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 a selected courses as fulfilling a Fundamentals requirement:

  • Dublin: ANTH 24386 Discoveries in Archaeology and ANTH 34022 Exploring Archaeology (equivalent to ANTH 20202) ANTH 24334 Social Anthropology (equivalent to ANTH 20203)
  • Freemantle: ANTH 34024 Introduction to Archaeology (equivalent to ANTH 20202)
  • Perth: ANTH 24420 Language Culture and Society (equivalent to ANTH 20204) and ANTH 34034 Being Human: Culture, Identity, and Society (equivalent to ANTH 20203)
