Internship Opportunities

The Department of Anthropology encourages its undergraduate majors to participate in internships in addition to their coursework. Internships provide the opportunity for students to combine their anthropological knowledge with hands-on experience and engage with new professional and community networks. There are a number of anthropological internships available — locally, nationally, and globally. Through our internship office, we can help you match your interests with those of a community partner. Check-out our Internship Finder to begin your search.

Funding your Internship
Although some internships are paid, many are not. Therefore, the department offers funding to supplement your internship efforts. Through a generous grant provided by alumnus Paul Liebman, we help ensure that financial concerns are never a barrier to attaining a great internship experience.
