Student Opportunities

Research Projects:  

Millions of objects equal thousands of topics for research papers in a variety of disciplines. Collections can be used for short-term projects, such as course papers, or for longer-term in-depth studies, such as senior theses. Museum staff are available to help students devise and implement their research projects.

Independent Study:

Anthropology 92xr is a course designed to provide students with an opportunity to gain familiarity with Museum collections, procedures, and practices. You may also consult the policy of your specific school on course credit for independent study or research. Collections can also be used for senior theses and graduate dissertations. Museum staff are available to help students devise and implement their research projects.
