Anthropology Program

Field Studies

The Anthropology Department at Northwest College has an outstanding tradition of taking students out of the classroom and into the field for unique hands-on learning experiences. Some courses are local and let students learn about the archaeology of the Bighorn Basin. The American Southwest course involves driving to the Four Corners region of Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, and Arizona to visit archaeological sites in the vicinity. The international trips take students to world-famous ruins and museums. Special scholarships make these trips affordable for college students on a tight budget.
