The department of anthropology regularly offers a 4 or 5-week summer field school program in applied ethnographic field methods. Our ethnographic field school is located in and around the town of Boma Ng’ombe, Tanzania, the home of many Chagga people. Program participants have a home-stay immersion experience. The field school begins with a one or two week preparation on the Fort Lewis Campus before heading to Tanzania for the remaining two or three weeks of the program.
