Student Resources

Gain valuable real-world experience

In the Department of Anthropology, Geography and Sociology, our students have the opportunity to get out of the classroom and put their skills to use. Our unique service learning activities, laboratories and internships provide you with valuable experience and help you prepare for life beyond SFA.

Whether you’re looking for a way to help the local community or get a firsthand look at potential career paths, you’ll find a way to get involved and give back.
