Student Research Projects
We view student research as an integral part of anthropological study. Gaining practical and professional experience, founded on in-depth theoretical knowledge, is at the heart of undergraduate and graduate study at DU. Students have access to resources and research opportunities through archaeological and ethnographic fieldwork, the DU Museum of Anthropology and a range of community partnerships.
Heather McClain, MA in Anthropology Museum & Heritage Studies
One of my favorite parts of the University of Denver Anthropology program is the hands-on experience I was able to cultivate while working with collections in the DU Museum of Anthropology. The skills I developed apply directly to my career as an anthropologist and a museum professional for a heritage institution.
