CAR Student Positions and Requirements
The successful completion of the Introductory Field Archaeology course (ANTH 291) or a summer archaeological field school qualifies undergraduates for employment with CAR. Students who have completed these courses should regularly inquire at the assistant director’s office (DDH CC209) about current and upcoming field projects.
Upon the successful completion of the Introduction to Laboratory Methods in Archaeology (ANTH 292), students may be afforded opportunities to work on CAR laboratory projects.
As students progress through the academic program and gain experience, they may be asked to serve in leadership roles in the field and laboratory. Graduate students meeting the academic and field experience requirements are allowed to calculate budgets, conduct, and report on small projects under the guidance of the associate and assistant directors (DDH CC209).
There are several rankings for archaeology students working for CAR:
