Internships for ND Students

Internships for Notre Dame Anthropology Majors and Minors

Annual Internship at the Smithsonian Institute

Research and training internships are being offered by the University of Notre Dame Department of Anthropology and the National Museum of Natural History (NMNH) in Washington DC.

This program is being funded by our department and it is the first time that the Smithsonian has ever established a special program such as this with a university. The Smithsonian selected Notre Dame following the Department's proposal in which we emphasized our four-fields approach and our commitment to undergraduate research. After reviewing our faculty and our web site, they concurred that Notre Dame Anthropology was, indeed, really special. Thus, the Museum staff guarantees internships for our students.

Annual Internship at the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago

In cooperation with the Chicago Field Museum in Chicago, Illinois, the University of Notre Dame Anthropology Department has established a summer internship program open to anthropology majors and minors.

The students selected for the Field Museum internships in Chicago work on research with Notre Dame faculty and museum staff using the Museum's priceless collections, including tasks like helping with new acquisitions, and will come to see museum work from the inside. The interns will report to the Regenstein Collections manager of Pacific Anthropology of this leading natural history museum.
