Special Opportunities

WCU offers a wealth of special opportunities to students like you who want to explore your studies and related fields further, both inside and outside the classroom.

Within the department, scholarship and research isn’t just for faculty. Many of our students have presented their research at Western’s Undergraduate Research Symposium, the National Undergraduate Research Symposium, and other professional meetings. Additionally, the Anthropology Club has sponsored a trip to the national meeting of the American Anthropological Association for many of the past 10 years.

Outside of the classroom you can benefit from the inspiration of your peers through clubs and organizations and gain valuable professional experience through an internship or co-operative education experience.

Come explore your special opportunities.
