Anthropology at Tufts gives students opportunities for ethnographic research through our Fieldwork Lab (Anth 161), several upper-level seminars (Anth 162 and over), internships (Anth 99), and independent research projects (Anth 197 and 199). Our students can present their research and engage with others through the Spring Student Anthropology Symposium (SSAS). This combination of hands-on research, disciplinary breadth, global and local understanding, and intellectual community makes Anthropology a strong major and an excellent preparation for a wide range of careers.
A minor in Anthropology complements a wide range of majors and disciplines, providing highly transferable skills and a grounding in a holistic and theoretically-informed way of thinking about humans in the world. We offer four distinct minors that allow you to gain a foundation in a thematically focused area of anthropology and training in specific methods, including ethnographic and publicly-engaged research.
