Studying abroad for a semester or year is one of the best ways to understand a different culture in a meaningful way. It is an experience that can have a profound impact on a student academically, personally, and professionally. Anthropology undergraduates can participate in university-wide international study programs administered through the USC College Office of Overseas Studies. Programs of varying lengths of study abroad are offered in 29 countries, with several programs focused specifically on Anthropological coursework and fieldwork.
Additionally, students are encouraged to investigate USC Dornsife Problems Without Passports and Maymester courses, which typically incorporate travel and field study, including courses offered each year in Anthropology.
Undergraduates majoring or minoring in Anthropology, Global Studies, Visual Anthropology, can earn course credit (via enrollment in ANTH 393 Directed Internship) for completing a semester-long internship. See the Internships page for more information.
