Take a Look at a Day in the Life of a Crow Canyon Intern

Posted February 27, 2019

Each year the Crow Canyon Archaeological Center hires a number of paid seasonal interns to assist with our archaeology research, education programs, and Native American outreach.

But unlike some places—where an intern might find themselves in a windowless office sorting and filing paperwork or some other mind-numbing task—interns here at Crow Canyon gain actual, practical research and outreach experience both on campus and out in the field. Becoming an intern is a competitive process, but the experience can be a vital first step in a career as a professional archaeologist.

Check out this video to get an idea of what it’s like to be a Crow Canyon intern.

Crow Canyon internships are open to both undergraduate and graduate students in archaeology, anthropology, education, and related fields.
