The Department of Anthropology offers a certificate program in Archaeology as well as Museum Internships. Certificate programs and Internships provide students with opportunities to acquire additional knowledge, practical skills and experience that better equip them to compete on the job market.
Archaeology is a field in which there are many career opportunities for those with a bachelor’s degree, particularly in cultural resource management (CRM). CRM professionals work for a wide variety of government agencies, as well as private companies that undertake archaeological studies in advance of development projects. The Certificate in Archaeology may also enhance a student’s qualifications for admission to graduate schools in cases where the student intends to focus on archaeology.
Museum Internships prepare students for entry-level careers in museums and similar venues that promote public outreach and education, and provides a solid foundation for students who wish to pursue advanced studies in the field of Museum studies.
