Anthropologists do more than watch people. They discover their stories.
Our students don't just sit around in a classroom, they get hands-on experience. Here are some of our graduate students learning about geoarchaeology. Understanding how sites form tells us a lot about the people who inhabit them.
The Anthropology Department at Eastern New Mexico University
The Anthropology Department at Eastern New Mexico University prides itself on producing graduates equipped to enter the field of anthropology as experienced and knowledgeable professionals. The choice between a thesis and a non-thesis track ensures that students are following the path that will best advance their career aspirations. Students on the thesis track have the option of working with a variety of well-known collections, including the Blackwater Draw collections and numerous other assemblages from southwest sites, as they conduct their research. Students on the non-thesis track complete an internship, which can potentially be done at the Blackwater Draw Museum, or at other agencies off-campus.
