Nearly every year, students have the opportunity to study abroad in Europe, Africa, or Central America with our anthropology faculty.
The Anthropology Program offers unique opportunities to learn outside of the classroom. We offer an archaeological field school as well as a field school focused on observing primates.
Field schools offered:
Archaeological Field School offered in the summer every other year; locations vary.
Dr. Bill Locasio with students at a field training exercise.
Students excavating at the Belle Glade digsite.
Primatological Field School offered every other spring at the Lemur Conservation Foundation in Florida.
Students observing semi-free ranging ring-tailed lemurs at the Lemur Conservation Foundation
Three red ruffed lemurs in the forest at the Lemur Conservation Foundation
The Anthropology Program at FGCU was exactly what I needed to help me gain employment with the Seminole Tribe of Florida’s Tribal Historic Preservation Office. The field school at Mound Key as well as the archaeology courses I took at FGCU provided me with the foundation necessary to be an attractive candidate for the Archaeological Field Technician position here at the THPO. I would highly recommend this program! ~ Shawn Keyte, Archaeological Field Technician, Tribal Historic Preservation Office, Seminole Tribe of Florida
