What labs and programs does Beloit College have to supports students in the museum studies and cultural anthropology majors?
Beloit College
Hi, Grace. Have you been able to learn as much as you'd like about Beloit? The Logan Museum of Anthropology on campus is a teaching museum, which makes for lots of opportunities for internships and research here on campus. We're also ranked #2 in the US for colleges sending women on to complete PhDs in anthropology. If you're thinking about the possibility of transferring, I'd love to put you in touch with faculty, a student, or an admission counselor (or all three)!
