Undergraduate Anthropology Society

What is the Undergraduate Anthropology Society?

The UAS is putting together fun and intellectual anthro-related events throughout the semester. In the past we have organized film screenings, trips to museum exhibits in Philadelphia, academic workshops and other social events. Check out the UAS Blog for more information.

Join the UAS! Whether you are just starting to get interested in Anthropology, or you are already a major or minor: the UAS welcomes students to get involved at any point in their undergrad years!

Calling All Senior Thesis Writers: This year we've put the spotlight on a Bootcamp workshop series for seniors who are writing theses. Need to refine your thesis topic, get IRB approval, build a theoretical frame, conduct quantitative analysis or figure out how to best display data and images? Join us! Check the UAS Blog for info on upcoming workshops.

To All Students: Get Published Now! The UAS is currently looking for submissions for the Fall issue of In Situ: The Penn Anthropology Undergraduate Journal. Please submit a final paper from a class, an article about your independent research, photographs from anthropology-related endeavors, or a personal essay regarding reflections and experiences on the anthropology lifestyle. Submissions are due in early November. Contact the Undergraduate Coordinator for more information, and look for details on flyers posted in the Anthropology Department.
