For Students

Semester Internships

SNRC offers internships to undergraduate students through the Department of English (course number: ENGL 4390) and the Department of Sociology and Anthropology (course number: SOCI 4393). Each is a three-hour credit course, in which the student is required to spend a certain amount of time (specified by the department) each week, working in the Center on an assigned project. The projects are generally tailored to meet the student’s academic needs, while utilizing the resources available in the Center.

SNRC also offers internships to graduate students enrolled in the Masters of Arts in Public History program. These students spend 180 hours in the Center working on an in-depth project involving research, arrangement and description, collection processing, or community outreach. After completion of the internship, students acquire and improve research skills useful in most professions and will be more prepared to enter the profession of archives, libraries, or museums.

Service-learning opportunities

SNRC offers opportunities to undergraduate students to spend a short time volunteering in the Center. The projects are tailored to the course in which the student is enrolled and may involve a research project on a particular topic that results in a written report the Center will use to aid future researchers. Examples are an annotated bibliography on missing and murdered Indigenous women in Canada or environmental issues in Indian Country.
