Directed Studies: Both majors and minors can customize their study of Anthropology by participating in directed studies under the supervision and guidance of a faculty member. All faculty are potentially available to work with you depending on your area of interest. These courses generally involve in-depth readings and research in a particular anthropological topic such as lithic analysis, foresic anthropology, and many other areas.

Internships: Internship opportunities provide the student with practical hands-on experience that involves 90 hours of unpaid work with a selected organization, institute, or company. Our students have interned with the Center for Archaeological Studies, the Museum of Mobile, USS Alabama Battleship Park, and and other places. Internships are arranged by a student working with a faculty member and are intended for juniors and seniors. Upon completion of the work the student will compose a paper detailing his or her activities or other educational aspects of the project. The objectives and guidelines for the paper will be set by the faculty member who arranged the internship.
