The Catalina Island Field School, California
July 10-August 16, 2012

Santa Catalina Island is an important hub for the intermingling of people and the exchange of ideas and objects. Surrounded by rich marine and lithic resources, Island people were contributors to an extensive trade network throughout southern California and the Southwest. However, little has been synthesized about this rich cultural landscape. The Pimu Catalina Island Archaeology Project provides a RPA certified field school where students are immersed in 9,000 years of cultural history while developing field and lab skills as well as the application of cultural resource law and policies with lectures by local experts, Tongva professionals, and researchers.

Tuition: $4,200 CSU system students; $4,350 all others

Academic credits: 8 semester credit units from California State University Northridge
