Great opportunities for aspiring anthropologists!
Internships prepare you for your future career. Through internships, you will:
gain professional skills and practical work experience

Internships allow students to explore the world of anthropology and work in an environment where classroom knowledge is applied to practical learning skills. The department maintains relationships with many local organizations and government offices to assist students in finding an internship placement matched to their interests and career goals.
Limited stipends are available to students who have a financial need and who complete an internship with a not-for-profit 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization.
What Kind of Prerequisites Do I Need to Apply?
The College of Arts & Sciences has established the following internship prerequisites:
Either 45 credit hours, including 9 in the unit in which credit is sought, or 60 credit hours, including 6 in the unit in which credit is sought;
A minimum grade point average of 2.5 for all coursework taken; and

Transfer students must have completed one full semester of work (12 hours). A maximum of 12 credits of internship (including hours earned in General Studies 301) may apply toward the 12 hours required for the degree.
