Get Involved

Our undergraduate students have the opportunity to take part in a variety of Anthropology-related activities on campus. Participating in activities beyond the classroom can lead to rewarding experiences, new skills, and new contacts, all of which can broaden and enhance your experience as an undergraduate student.

Check our Events page regularly and connect with the UTM Anthropology Society for the latest event announcements.

How to get involved: 

Participate in the UTM Anthropology Society.  UTMAS presents a wide variety of fun and inclusive events throughout the year. Undergraduate students enrolled in Anthropology programs (major, minor, or specialist) are automatically members of UTMAS and are eligible to vote during elections for Executive Council positions. These positions provide the opportunity to develop valuable, transferable skills in leadership, organization, communication, event planning, and more.

Attend the Anthropology Conference at UTM. Meet fellow UTM Anthropology students, grow your network, and if you wish to present your research you can practice your skills in an informal, supportive environment!

Attend a special lecture organized by the department. U of T faculty and guests from other prestigious institutions lecture on a variety of Anthropology-related subjects. Lectures will be posted on our Events page.

Attend a special event for the opportunity to engage with peers and learn directly from them about their experiences in field schools, independent study courses, internships, or work-study positions. You can gain valuable insights into possible avenues to explore, and broaden your network at the same time. 

Volunteer to assist at a UTM on-campus event such as March Break Open House or Fall Campus Day. Put your skills to work and gain valuable volunteer experience at the same time! Contact the UTM Anthropology Society if you are interested in volunteer opportunities.

Other activities on campus:

Across the UTM campus you will find a wide array of workshops on topics ranging from developing your academic skills to learning about the road to graduate school. Connect with the Academic Skills Centre, the Career Centre, and other departments to make use of these valuable resources.
