Why CWU Anthropology?

Students in the anthropology program can become involved with a CWU Field School that conducts archaeological fieldwork in central Washington.

Students enrolled in the CWU Forensic Anthropology Field School experience the appropriate recovery and handling of human remains by excavating a mock crime scene.

Archaeological students get an up-close look at the importance of public involvement in the protection of local archaeological resources.

CWU anthropology offers course work in cultural anthropology, archaeology, biological anthropology and linguistics.

Hands-on Learning

We know hands-on experience makes learning exciting. That's why at Central you'll get a chance to do what you're learning and enjoy real-world opportunities in the field.
