Faculty in the Department of Anthropology maintain active research projects and publish widely in a variety of venues and forms. Anthropological research takes place in the field, in archives and research institutions and in laboratories, and often involves long-term collaborations and partnerships with other institutions, professional associations and foundations.
Undergraduates and graduate students regularly participate in faculty research projects in the field and can conduct individual research projects in New York City or in the biological anthropology, archaeology and linguistics laboratories based at Hunter’s 68th Street Campus. The Department of Anthropology Research and Training Grants, awarded each semester, provide funds to support independent research by undergraduate majors and graduate students.
