The Anthropology Department offers a biannual field school course taught at the Slocan Narrows Pithouse Village in southeastern British Columbia, Canada. The course runs for six weeks during June and July. The field school trains students in excavation, survey, equipment used in mapping, as well as the archaeology, ethnography, and oral tradition of the interior Pacific Northwest. The next field school will be taught in 2015 reoccurring every other year after. Upon the completion of this course, students are eligible to be employed in archaeology.  Prerequisite, Arch 106: Principles of Archaeology.
