Academic and Fieldwork Opportunities

Social Science majors may elect to make independent arrangements to study abroad with faculty approval. Internships undertaken through Cooperative Education enable students to gain firsthand experience in areas related to their major and interests. Students have acted as legislative aides in government, worked in museums, law offices, correctional facilities, and have been involved with social-service delivery programs and with municipal government research projects.

In addition, the department offers a number of opportunities for students to experience the culture of a foreign country by traveling to that country and visiting historic and cultural sites, cultural events, and interacting with the people and culture. The department also offers ANT 3820 Antropology Fieldwork and SSC 3820 Global Studies Fieldwork.  Only two fieldwork/trip courses will count towards the advanced area studies credits in either major.
