Internships The Department offers several formal internship opportunities for students, with preference for our majors. In addition, students are also encouraged to design their own internships with input from specific department members.
Independent Study and Research The Department offers students the opportunity to engage in directed individual study or research with the guidance of a faculty member.
Honor Societies The Department brought two student Honors Societies to Washington and Lee University in 2008.
James G. Leyburn Scholars Program in Anthropology The Department offers the opportunity for students to participate in archaeological and ethnographic fieldwork, as well as cultural resource management, during the summer. This has been done under the auspices of the James G. Leyburn program, an endowed program that allows undergraduates and alumni working in anthropology to compete for stipends.
