Anthropology Department Resources
Anthropological Studies Center
The department’s Anthropological Studies Center (ASC) provides students with the opportunity to participate in prehistoric and historical archaeology, geoarchaeology, the conservation and analysis of archaeological materials, local history, and public outreach in the context of grant and contract-aided research projects. The Center has more than 5,000 square feet of archaeological laboratory and curation facilities and is supported by a professional staff. Internships are offered annually.
The department’s anthropology laboratory has a computer configured for linguistic applications, including the analysis and transcription of audio and video data. In addition, the department’s human skeletal material and fossil cast collections (which include cranial and post-cranial material) are also housed in the anthropology lab and are regularly used in biological anthropology courses. This lab is often used for methods courses.
The David Fredrickson Research Grant is a competitive award funded by the staff of the Anthropological Studies Center and is offered annually to graduate students in Cultural Resources Management. Contact the ASC for details. The University offers another anthropology scholarship, the Conni Miller Memorial Scholarship. ASC also funds an annual scholarship in Cultural Resources Management. Contact the Scholarship Office for information.
Other resources include the Anthropology Club and an anthropology lounge and library.
