The Department of Sociology and Anthropology offers students the opportunity to engage in internships in service, research, teaching and work/corporate settings. These internships enhance students’ knowledge of sociology and/or anthropology in two ways. First, internships are opportunities for students to apply their knowledge to real-life settings in service to the community, academic research, teaching or in profit-oriented occupational settings, thus furthering their skills in applying their knowledge in practical ways. Second, internships allow students to gain a deeper understanding of the sociological and anthropological concepts, theories and ideas which underlie these disciplines.
During Winter Term each January, the Department of Sociology and Anthropology offers two study abroad programs. These include Aboriginal Australia, one of Elon’s most popular studies abroad courses, and a new offering, Peru: Archaeology, Language and Culture.
Students interested in conducting original research in Sociology and Anthropology can develop research projects with faculty members or join an existing research project to get invaluable, hands-on research experience. Click the link below to learn more about these student research opportunities.
