Honours Internship


Admission requirements

Participation in the Honours College Track Archaeology.


The Honours internship is a ‘socially’ embedded internship: it is therefore not merely about gaining experience with archaeological methods (excavation, survey, material research), but about how archaeology can be viewed in a wider context (project work, presenting/managing museum collections, archaeological public presentation, social relevance of research, etc.).
The Honours internship lasts at least 17 working days.
