University anthropologists employ the latest tools in their study, including the application of geographic information systems to anthropological and archaeological research topics. Students at Monmouth benefit from faculty who are working in the field. Not only does faculty experience outside the classroom inform their teaching technique, but it provides students with experiential education opportunities as they work side by side with their mentors and with other professionals in the field. In addition to the high standard of methodological theoretical excellence, Monmouth faculty engage in topical and regional emphases.
