Studies Internship Program (Summer 2012)
The Classical Studies Internship
program allows students to work on projects in collaboration with faculty to
advance knowledge of the ancient Greek and Roman worlds. These projects help move
forward an individual faculty member's research agenda, aid in the development
of new curriculum for the department, or contribute the department's digital
humanities initiatives. We believe in
advancing student learning through unique and innovative projects that have
meaningful results. Dickinson students or recent alumni majoring in classical
studies, or in archaeology with a Mediterranean focus, are encouraged to apply.
