Student Research Opportunities

The Adelphi University Department of Anthropology welcomes applications from graduate and undergraduate students interested in Anthropology or related disciplines to join our 2014 archaeological field school in the beautiful Alaska Susitna River valley. In addition to participation in an ongoing research program, students will experience unspoiled Alaska wilderness, acquire important technological skills using state-of-the-art field based research technologies, and learn the fundamentals of archaeological field methods including excavation and survey. Backcountry hiking and remote camping are required. See attached flyer.

This summer, Adelphi is also offering a new field course on Maya ethnography in Guatemala, a field school in the middle Tanana valley of interior Alaska and our longstanding bioarchaeological program on the Island of Crete.

Taught by experienced faculty with student-instructor ratios among the lowest available, these programs emphasize a wide range of experiential learning opportunities. For more information on any of these programs, please visit our website .
