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 rather than relying on what is presented in politics, media, or books. It gives you the chance to see how people in other cultures translate local history and meanings to shape their current world.
- Explore the social and cultural phenomenon and everyday practices that define a culture and make it special and uniquely human
- Conduct field work in high mountain deserts, record oral histories in remote villages, or discover the symbolic meanings of artifacts held in museum collections
- Experience the social dynamics of indigenous and non-indigenous groups by spending time in their communities
