Our department is committed to expanding undergraduate research opportunities, and we are doing just that. The kinds of research you do here prepare you well for graduate school and open doors in the workplace. Let us set you up for success.
Distinguish a male skeleton from a female skeleton, examine ancient artifacts, determine the differences between the skulls of a Homo erectus and a Neanderthal. In the anthropology lab, you learn to describe and classify artifacts, conduct experiments to reveal tool usage and manufacturing and utilize research methods used by archaeologists and biological anthropologists. And that's just to get you started!

Most of our students do well in grad school because we treat them like grad students starting in their fourth year.
