Introduction to Directed Research

Anthropology 290 - Fall 2020

This course level is typically taken by freshmen or sophomores during their first semester working in a lab or on a faculty research project. In science-oriented labs (physical anthropology or archaeology) student responsibilities may consist of entering data collected by others, washing/cleaning glassware, and learning basic laboratory techniques. Responsibilities of the student should be minor and task-oriented, with no expectation of written work or concept mastery. In sociocultural anthropology the responsibilities may consist of producing short summaries of relevant scholarly works. May be taken for 1-3 credit hours, 1-2 recommended. Students must enroll in a specific section with a faculty member and receive approval from the department.
