Bridging the divide between any culture’s history and current events cannot be fully understood from a single vantage point. Taking your anthropology studies abroad means starting a personal journey of discovery into what is true about a culture. It gives you the chance to see how people in other cultures translate local history and meanings to shape their current world.
Things you can do abroad as an anthropology major:
- Explore the social and cultural phenomenon and everyday practices that define a culture
- Hone your ethnographic skills by observing and participating in local culture, or discover the symbolic meanings of artifacts held in museum collections
- Study the socio-economic impact of tourism on indigenous communities
- Learn new perspectives on the evolution of human societies from early humans to today
