The University of Montana’s Anthropological Collection Facility Internships are designed to serve a dual purpose: 1.) to give students an opportunity for hands-on experience, and 2.) to allow the repository to operate at full capacity, clearing its 40+ year backlog without requiring a million dollar operating budget.
Every student is allowed to count 6 internship credits towards graduation. The Internship may be taken for 2-6 credits and can be taken for more than one semester, upon approval. For every credit taken, 3 hours per week are owed to the repository.
During a UMACF Internship you will:
- Earn Upper-Division or Graduate Credits
- Learn valuable job skills
- Anthropological Curation Methods
- Archaeological Laboratory Methods
- Heritage Laws
- Professional Ethics.
- Work with Heritage materials from across Montana, the Northwest, and the World.
The UMACF welcomes students from many disciplines:
- Native American Studies
- Fine Arts
- Computer Sciences
