undergraduate research

Anthropology students have opportunities to engage in Honors projects and independent studies that require students to actively engage in research.

A recent sampling of research:

  • Sarah Kloos '18: Vietnamese Cusinie in Cleveland

Anthropolgy students can work with faculty who may help in having their work published.
