“I’ve interned at the Smithsonian’s Museum Conservation Institute, the Natural History Museum’s Forensic Anthropology Lab and the Archaeology in Annapolis Lab.  These have been some of the most rewarding opportunities because I believe that being an anthropology major is more than just taking the classes—it’s about getting out there and getting those real-world experiences.”

--Raquel Fleskes, B.A. Anthropology

“I’m interested in pursuing a career doing malware analysis, Web development or intelligence analysis.  All of my internships and conference experiences have provided me invaluable insight into crime, nation-state-sponsored economic espionage and implications of cyber-attacks on various institutions of business and government.”  --Jonathan Dixon, B.A. Economics

“As an intern in Congressman Steny Hoyer’s (D-Md.) office, I learned about the day-to-day operations of a legislative office while gaining valuable policy research experience.  It was an amazing opportunity for me to apply what I had learned in class to the real world.”

--Niranjan Murali, B.A. Government & Politics/Master's of Public Policy
