Opportunities in Anthropology

Internships and Museum Studies

Anthropology majors receive valuable hands-on experience through internship opportunities at area museums and beyond. Recent internships have included work at anthropology-related organizations such as Rochester Museum and Science Center, George Eastman House, Strong Museum, and Mt. Vernon National Monument.

If you are considering a career in museum curation or a similar field, Fisher's Museum Studies Certificate would be a great compliment to your studies.

Archeology Digs and Study Abroad

Anthropology majors are encouraged to spend a semester or year studying abroad. Fisher anthropology majors have worked at fieldwork sites as close as the old Charlotte Lighthouse in Rochester and as far away as Ukraine or Belize.

Additional fieldwork opportunities include taking part in archaeological digs in upstate New York or around the world.

Research Opportunities

In addition, majors can work closely with faculty on research projects and present their findings at area scientific meetings, gaining valuable exposure to professionals in the field. Anthropology majors have presented the results of their own research at the Rochester Academy of Science's Annual Scientific Paper Session.

Anthropology majors may take advantage of The Washington Experience - a semester in Washington, D.C. Detailed information about this unique program can be found in The Washington Experience section of the Undergraduate Catalog.
