Anthropology Work Opportunities

ISU's Anthropology Department offers many opportunities for students at all levels to gain hands-on, specialized experience in anthropological and archaeological field and laboratory methods. Some of these opportunities are held abroad, in locations like the Aleutian Islands of Alaska, the Sacred Valley in Peru, and the Polynesia Pacific. Other opportunities take place in the mountains and deserts of eastern Idaho, rural health cooperatives and in the anthropology laboratories on the ISU campus.
