CROW CANYON INTERNSHIPS


Crow Canyon offers paid internships to undergraduate and graduate students in archaeology, anthropology, education, and related fields.

2022 Internships

Crow Canyon’s research focuses on the Ancestral Pueblo occupation of the Mesa Verde region. In 2017, Crow Canyon launched the Northern Chaco Outliers Project, an investigation of an Ancestral Pueblo village with two Pueblo II period (A.D. 950–1150) great houses.

The Crow Canyon Archaeological Center maintains high standards of research and scholarship. Students and adults participating in the Center’s programs are closely supervised by research and education staff members in the field and the lab, ensuring a positive learning experience for them, as well as high-quality research for the profession. In addition, American Indians—many of them descendants of Ancestral Pueblo people—consult on all facets of our research, and colleagues from many other disciplines contribute their expertise to help us achieve our objectives. In such an environment, archaeology interns have the opportunity to gain valuable experience in working with, and learning from, a wide variety of people.
