Summer Internship

Applications being accepted now!


The Forensic Anthropology Center is pleased to offer a summer internship for non-UT students!  The internship is from May 29 to June 30, 2017.  The internship lasts five weeks and the first week is taking part of the Field Methods course.  We reserve four spots for selected interns in the Field Methods Course.  The cost for the course is $600 and we prefer if you stay in University Housing during the course which is $35/night.  During that time, you will be one of 18 participants in the course.   The rest of the time you can sublet a place if you find one.

Afterwards, tasks of the internship include helping with daily FAC operations, including helping with the short courses, the Body Donation Program, and processing of skeletal remains, and working on your own mock forensic case.  There is not a curriculum per se but flexibility is a requirement.  You do not need to be registered in a University program as long as in your letter of intent you can indicate your goals and plans.   We encourage having taken an osteology course and a clear future goals.

The internship is unpaid and interns are responsible for their housing, meals, and transportation.  However, they can stay in University Housing.  While UT does not offer credit for the internship, credit may be available through their university.
