The Anthropology Department at Beloit College was created in 1893 when Frank G. Logan founded the Logan Museum of Anthropology—the world’s largest undergraduate anthropology teaching and research museum. The department continues to foster undergraduate research experiences, which includes decolonizing the discipline through our curriculum. Faculty field and museum research projects in the Caribbean, East and Southeast Asia, Europe and the American Midwest regularly involve Beloit students. Anthropology majors are strongly encouraged to study off-campus abroad for at least one semester and develop fluency in other languages. Many students combine their anthropology major with an interdisciplinary minor such as museum studies, modern languages, or area studies. An anthropology minor is also available.
Field Term experiences in which students work off campus are readily available, as are a variety of internships.
See LOGAN MUSEUM OF ANTHROPOLOGY. The department has funds available to support student research projects and field experiences, offered on a competitive basis.
