Field School Information

In order to be competitive in today’s growing work force students must gain hands-on experience. The Department of Anthropology strongly encourages its students to obtain some field experience in one of the Anthropological sub-disciplines. One way for students to do this is through a field school.

Dominic Bush Guam Maritime Field School 2017

A field school is primarily for the training of undergraduate or graduate students. For around six or eight weeks in the summer, a small band of students is taken into the field and shown how to dig, given lectures, sometimes an exam, sometimes a project of some sort. The students get credit and training that way, starting them off in a career in archaeology.
