Internships in anthropology provide students with opportunities to gain practical, hands-on experience in community sites and cross-cultural settings beyond the university. Typical sites include social service agencies, city and regional planning offices, community, cultural and environmental advocacy groups and sustainable development non-profits and for-profit enterprises. These may be located in Boone and surrounding communities or in other national and international sites. Students may earn up to six semester credit hours by working 300 supervised hours, although the typical internship consists of 150 supervised work hours for three semester credit hours. For details, please contact either Dr. Dana Powell.
The Department of Anthropology is located in Anne Belk Hall. The administrative office is located in Room 342 and all of the faculty offices, classrooms, and labs are located on the 3rd floor.
