Applied Anthropology: Ethnographic Field Schools

Huanchaco, Trujillo, Peru

The USU Ethnographic Field School has provided students with classroom instruction and hands-on experience/training in ethnographic methods since 2002. Designed and coordinated by USU Professor of Anthropology Bonnie Glass-Coffin, the field school acts as an Asset-Based Community Development program for a small community while providing students with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to earn credit as participants in an ethnographic field school for anthropological/sociological research. The program is located in Huanchaco, Peru, a fishing village on the northwest coast of Peru near Trujillo and several famous archaeological sites. A local option is also available.
