About Her Experience in the Anthropology Department

“I really enjoyed my experience at the CU Anthropology department. As a student, you are surrounded by others who are smart, dedicated, and motivated to do the best work possible. The department is very encouraging of the work that you do and are supportive of your ideas both in the classroom and in your personal research. The required classes and electives available to students give you a well rounded education and a graduate degree from CU can open many doors once out in the work force.”
