Hi! I'm a junior trying to research potential colleges, and I'm considering applying to NYU.

Hi there! When it comes to research opportunities, NYU is definitely a research university with a strong focus on various areas of study. The university encourages undergrads to get involved in research and even offers some programs to help them do so.

As for anthropology, the NYU Department of Anthropology has a reputation for its dynamic research and academic programs. There's a wide range of topics covered in the department, from archaeology to sociocultural anthropology, that would pique your interest. Faculty members are often involved in research projects, and they may offer undergrad students the opportunity to work alongside them. This can provide you with hands-on learning experiences and the ability to network with researchers in your field.

If you are proactive and reach out to professors early on, you'll likely find research opportunities that align with your interests. Also, consider looking into summer research internships, which many universities offer - it'll give you additional experience and bolster your academic profile. Best of luck with your college search!
