Opportunities to conduct research and participate in fieldwork are available through the Department and elsewhere. Concentrators interested in archaeology are encouraged to obtain training in field archaeology and/or material culture analysis by enrolling in ANTH1950/ARCH1900 or ANTH1621 or by participating in an archaeological field school. Concentrators interested in sociocultural anthropology can gain experience in ethnographic fieldwork in ANTH1940. Brown’s Undergraduate Teaching and Research Award (UTRA) fellowships provide funding for concentrators interested in collaborative research with a faculty member during the summer or semester; and in collaborative teaching projects during the semester.
Students should contact individual professors to inquiry about research assistance opportunities during the academic year.
