Internships in CRM

As part of the CRM graduate program, students are required to complete three internship units so they may gain experience in a variety of cultural resource management settings. Internships are decided upon by discussion between the student and his or her advisor. Students will normally take both on-campus and off-campus internships. On-campus internships are available at the Anthropological Studies Center, including internships in CRM small projects management, archaeological site survey, archaeological collections management, and various others that can be arranged on a case by case basis. SSU students can also do internships at the Northwest Information Center.
