Students who have an internship that is related to anthropology can receive formal academic credit for this experience by enrolling in an appropriate-designated course (e.g. ANTH 512). To receive credit, all internships must first be approved by a faculty member in the anthropology department.
There are many possible internships for students in the anthropology program. For example, students have recently completed internships at:
- The Cincinnati Museum Center
- National Geographic
- The History Channel
- The Discovery Channel
Other possibilities include the Cincinnati Zoo, Hamilton County Parks, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and local environmental engineering or cultural resources management firms.
We encourage students to contact faculty members directly to learn more about opportunities for internships and the process of obtaining academic credit.
