Ethnographic Studies II
Immersion in an experiential field study, Canada or abroad, provides opportunity to apply anthropological knowledge and analytical frameworks. The course typically includes site visits, observation, in-field data collection and seminars (day and/or evening). Advance sessions and readings will provide background on the topic and setting before the field study.
Counts towards anthropology major in category 1 – Ethnographic and Archaeological Research.
Prerequisite: ANTH 111, ANTH 112, ANTH 211, and third-year standing; and/or permission of the instructor.
NOTE: Even though a student may have the prerequisites, the individual is still subject to approval by the instructor as field schools have an application and interview process.
