Departments & Programs


Field and Overseas Study

Anthropology is predominantly founded on field research, and students are encouraged to register for a field school. Many course requirements for the major or minor in anthropology and other departments can be met through approved field schools, and field school elective hours are applicable to any College major. Anthropology credit for field school participation is guaranteed only for programs directed by IU anthropology faculty or with advance approval by the director of undergraduate studies. Opportunities for participating in fieldwork with IU faculty exist outside of formal field school courses. For more information about field schools and fieldwork, contact the Department of Anthropology, Student Building 130, (812) 855-1041; for study abroad, contact the Office of Overseas Study, Franklin Hall 303, (812) 855-9304.
