Real World Experience
The Center for Anthropological Services provides Hamline students and recent graduates with opportunities to gain practical, on-the-job experience in the form of internships and employment. Interns and employees of the Center work at archaeological and burial recovery sites across the state, and in the archaeology lab on campus. Working with the Center reinforces classroom experience and gives students practical skills that will prepare them for jobs in cultural resource management or further academic study. Interested students should contact Professor Brian Hoffman (firstname.lastname@example.org) for additional information.
