Internships are a great way to translate the knowledge and skills you learn in the classroom into work experience, networking connections, and career development. We are fortunate because Washington, D.C. is a fabulous place to land internships.

The Anthropology Department has ties to the Smithsonian Institution, the National Gallery of Art, and numerous research and public policy organizations in Washington, D.C., and can help identify internships for students and unique opportunities available through the American Anthropological Association, the Society for American Archaeology and the Washington Association of Professional Anthropologists located here.

  • Tudor Place Historic House and Garden

    Tudor Place is unique among historic sites in Washington, D.C., in that most of its 5½ acres remain intact and free from recent construction or development. As a result, the ground below also lies undisturbed, a rich material record of lost features and occupations awaiting discovery. Archaeological surveys at Tudor Place have yielded clues to the early years of Georgetown and the capital city, including likely locations of a dwelling for enslaved workers and dependencies of an urban estate.
