GET FIELD SCHOOL AND INTERNSHIP CREDIT!

Up to 6 hours of field school credit can be applied to the ANTH electives. To receive credit for a non-UTA field school, students must obtain clearance before attending the field school. Internships can be used toward your degree if approved by the department. Contact the department advisor before you begin your internship. You may also need to coordinate this with a UTA Anthropology faculty member.
