Loyola University Chicago

Department of Anthropology

Fieldwork and Research Opportunities

In recent years advanced students have earned credit for research assistance on a variety of faculty-directed projects. These include the analysis of human skeletal remains from a 19th-century cemetery in Chicago; laboratory analyses of archaeological artifacts from Mesoamerica; the study of captive primate behavior at the Lincoln Park Zoological gardens; and a study of aging at a local retirement center, to name a few.

Students are encouraged to gain summer fieldwork experiences in archaeology, biological anthropology and cultural anthropology.

Cooperative programs between Loyola and other universities around the world provide these opportunities.
