Rick has an interesting point. I couldn't agree more than current faculty
projects (and contacts) would be excellent places for undergraduates (or even
graduate students) to begin applied cultural fieldwork. But in digress, I
think it important to point out that all students bring their outside interests
with them into the classroom. I know that is a major focus of our applied
program here at NAU. But for clarification (and I address this to NAU
anthro. faculty out there), isn't there an undergraduate applied anthropology
course taught here? Can someone explain what is covered in that course, and
what, if any, fieldwork is conducted?
