Rutgers Anthropology Department Programs

Morocco, France, Indonesia

Message from Rob Scott regarding Field Schools:

Dear Students,

A principal initiative of the Anthropology Department is to offer Study Abroad opportunities for students. These are potentially life-changing experiences and are an opportunity to do a bit of field work and learn outside of our traditional classrooms.

Watch for more news about study abroad programs as travel begins to open up.  Bigel award funds may be used for the cost of any of these programs.

These are our programs:
