Program Description:

Archaeological Summer Field Work & Summer Schools
    GENERAL REQUIREMENTS
  In order to receive credit for foreign archaeological field work projects, Arts and Sciences requires that you secure pre-approval. Summer field work projects abroad are different from regular course work abroad in terms of approval procedure.

1)  You must complete the online application with the Overseas Programs office, which you can initiate by clicking on the Apply now button above.
 
2)  You must meet with the appropriate faculty advisor:
 
ANTHROPOLOGY STUDENTS: Field work is a discipline requirement and falls under different academic rules.  You will need to meet with the Anthropology Curriculum Coordinator, John Kelly, jkelly@wustl.edu, to discuss your field work project and receive his approval.
 
CLASSICS STUDENTS: You will need to meet with the Professor Tim Moore, tmoore@wustl.edu, to discuss your field work project and receive his approval.
 
Bring the following items to your meeting:
  • a copy of the description of the field work or courses
  • a copy of the Summer Archaeological Field Work Program Information Sheet (downloaded from your sa.wustl.edu application)
  • your statement of academic goals
  • a copy of your student record printout from WebSTAC 
After the field project, you must submit a portfolio of your work to the Anthropology or Classics department by the end of the second week of the fall or spring semester after you return from your field project.  The portfolio will be defined before you leave, but it may include a daily log or journal, samples of your field notes, or a report you completed for your field sponsor.  Review of this portfolio is the final step before credit is recommended.
 
  Questions
For additional information about the Field Work Project and portfolio please contact Dr. John Kelly jkelly@wustl.edu or Dr. Tim Moore tmoore@wustl.edu.
