Campus Resources

The on-line Anthropological Literature database, the Eells Northwest collection, the College Archives, and numerous anthropological books and periodicals (all at the Penrose Library and the Anthropology Subject Guide), the Maxey Museum (historical and anthropological collections from around the world), the Hunter Multimedia Lab (for work in visual anthropology), and a wide range of foreign language course offerings.

Beyond Whitman 

The American Anthropological Association (AAA) also provides a wide variety of resources, including a career center, publishing style guide, and access to the newest publications in Anthropology.

Experiential Learning 

The anthropology faculty also strongly encourage (and will happily provide information about) participation in any of the many excellent off-campus study programs* with which the College is affiliated (either for a semester or a whole year, typically during the junior year). Domestic and international summer field schools in archaeology and cultural anthropology are also popular with our majors. For more information or to explore even more internship opportunities, check out the Whitman Internship Database, see the Career and Community Engagement Center's Internship Page or contact a member of the faculty!

*Off-campus study programs have been cancelled for the Fall 2020 semester due to COVID-19
