Haffenreffer Museum of Anthropology


Internship Opportunities & Resources at the Haffenreffer Museum.

The HMA has a limited internship program dependent on staff availability and museum needs. The program is at capacity for AY2022/2023, but if you are interested in future opportunities please get in touch.

Brown University students usually enroll in ANTH 1970 (for undergraduate students) or ANTH 2980 (for graduate students). Brown University undergraduate students can also partner with the Museum for an UTRA award.

Students from any university may propose internship projects for the Museum. Past projects have focused on collections management, education, exhibitions, public relations, conservation, and independent research.

Interns must work with a faculty advisor from their institution and Museum staff to determine the project’s scope and timeline. Students are expected to work at least one day per week during their internship and can receive course credit or, in some cases, a small stipend.
