A series of credit-bearing internships has been developed over the years to allow successful anthropology students with good GPAs to practice their skills and hone their anthropological perspectives in situations beyond the classroom. Students have worked with government agencies (Conservation Departments, parks, state historic sites), NPR radio stations, Migrant centers, International Student Programs, community agencies, foreign university exchange programs, university offices, and other entities.
