The San Diego Archaeological Center offers internships to college and graduate-level students who are interested in developing knowledge and skills related to archaeology and museum services. The Center is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the care, management, and use of archaeological materials and serves as the main repository for archaeological collections from San Diego County and surrounding areas. The Center has active public education and exhibit programs and facilitates collections-based research. Interns may select an emphasis in Archaeological Collections Research, Archaeological Collections Management, or Exhibit and Education Programming.

All interns gain valuable experience in artifact identification, laboratory techniques, and archaeological and curation methodology. Depending on their chosen focus, interns work with Center staff to design and conduct original research projects; inventory, organize and document collections; or design and produce exhibits or educational curricula. The Center has hosted interns from Grossmont College, Independent Language School, Mesa College, Palomar College, UCSD, SDSU, UCR, UCI, and USD.

The orientation includes a tour of the Center and an introduction to the different kinds of internships available. Center staff (including Dr. Margie Burton, Research Director; Chris Mirsky, Collections Manager; and Annemarie Cox, Program Coordinator) will be present to discuss possible projects, required skills, and scheduling.
