Public Archaeology Internship
Grant MacEwan University, in partnership with the Bodo Archaeological Society, offers the course, Anthropology 495: Public Archaeology Field Placement every summer. This course was first offered in 2015 and, each summer, two to four students are accepted for a placement at Bodo. Students gain course credit (3 credits) and placements are typically 6 to 8 weeks long. Acceptance into the field placement is competitive and subject to an application process which includes an interview.
The goal of this course is to provide opportunities for students to engage in authentic community and/or employment placement that is focused on the profession of Anthropology. The students will apply their knowledge and skills in research or other practical aspects of a project, in this case, public archaeology. You will gain experience guiding tours, interacting with the public, educating the public, running the day-to-day operations of an interpretive centre, and you will obtain archaeological excavation and lab experience.
If you are interested in taking this course, please see below for more information and an application form. Applications are due March 20, 2020. If you have questions please e-mail email@example.com.
