Sociology & Anthropology

Research Opportunities in Anthropology

Students are highly encouraged to work with faculty to develop their own research. The College of Arts & Sciences provides modest support for undergraduate student research.

In addition students may participate in ongoing faculty research projects. Some examples include:

  • environmental sustainability on campus and in the local community
  • effects of flooding on rural communities in Illinois
  • sustainable local food production
  • Gulf coast shrimp fisheries and hurricanes
  • the effects of climate change and rising sea level on small island nations
