Ethnographic Studies (ETH) Certificate

Program in Ethnographic Studies Program

Welcome to Ethnographic Studies

The Anthropology Department offers a certificate in ethnographic studies for concentrators in other departments.

The Certificate Program in Ethnographic Studies (ETH) is intended for undergraduate students in all divisions (Humanities, Social Sciences, Natural Sciences and Engineering) as a supplement or complement to their department concentration or other certificate studies. It is especially designed for students who wish to integrate study abroad or international or domestic internships into their independent work, but it is open to all.

Lessons from the Field

Read the essay by Professor Carolyn Rouse on "Lessons from the Field: Pragmatism, Design Thinking, and an Existential Reframing of Engagement" in the Journal of the American Anthropological Association. It is one of a collection of essays on why preserving the need for anthropologists and ethnographic work is so crucial to the future.
