Anthropology majors and minors are also encouraged to consult with other faculty members in the department in order to discuss specific issues related to their sub-field. All faculty are actively involved in research and this provides many opportunities for undergraduates. Faculty often integrate students into research projects, which gives students hands-on experience conducting research. In most cases, participation in faculty (or graduate student) research is through informal volunteer internships or through the Participatory Learning Experience (PLE) mechanism. In rare cases, undergraduates are paid through employment in faculty research. Students should contact faculty directly to inquire about the possibility of research opportunities.
