2018 Summer Field School in Alaska

The Adelphi University, Department of Anthropology welcomes applications for our 2018 summer field school in Alaska. Interested students can find more information in the attached program flyer or view our latest 2-minute short YouTube. Review of applications will begin January 10 and continue until the course is full—so submit your application early.

 This year, research will focus on the newly discovered Holzman site along Shaw Creek where multiple hearths, large mammal bones, stone tools, and a nearly complete mammoth tusk were found dating to the end of the Ice Age. Join our research team in the scenic Tanana Valley as we investigate the question, who were the First Alaskans?

Taught by experienced faculty with a student-instructor ratio among the lowest available (3:1), this program emphasizes a range of experiential learning opportunities. Already have a field school experience but looking for something more? We also offer an advanced program for graduate credit (0103-532). For PhD candidates, individual research projects may be negotiated.
