ANT 493 - Anthropology Senior Seminar & Capstone Research Project

This senior research seminar is designed to give students an opportunity to draw on their academic experience and explore a particular anthropological topic or debate of their choice.  Throughout the course of the semester, students will conduct research and work toward the completion of a research project.  This project will allow students to gain valuable hands-on experience designing, researching, writing, and presenting your work while building relationships with faculty and peers.  The course will allow students to engage in anthropological inquires and debates while honing skills in communication, argumentation, and problem solving that will be useful beyond the classroom.  Weekly discussions, journal entries, a final project (submitted in stages), and a presentation will be used to assess student progress.
