WSU Vancouver and the National Park Service offer a field school in historical archaeology at Fort Vancouver National Historic Site. Students participate in all aspects of field and laboratory work: laying out units, excavation by shovel and trowel, mapping, drawing, photography, and cleaning, identifying and analyzing artifacts.
Anthropology faculty conduct research all over the world. Contact a faculty member about opportunities to participate in faculty research.
For experience learning to apply classroom knowledge within a professional environment, consider arranging an internship at a local business or agency. Work with a faculty member to find an appropriate placement site.
Anthropology students are encouraged to study abroad. For more information, see the Office of International Programs.
