Freshman Seminar

Each year, the Anthropology Department offers a freshman seminar. This seminar aims to introduce a small group of freshman students to anthropology through discussion and research on a particular issue or topic. As an inaugural journey into the world of contemporary anthropology, the freshman seminar encourages class participation, student cooperation, group projects, and active research.
