Each semester the faculty, staff, and students of the Georgia Museum of Natural History welcome undergraduates as Natural History interns to enjoy a hands-on course with the Museum. Interns receive supervised experiential learning working directly with the faculty, staff, and other students curating one of the natural history collections affiliated with the Georgia Museum of Natural History or with education and outreach programs. Collections available for internships are: Archaeology, Arthropods, Botany, Economic Geology, Herpetology, Genomics and Marine Invertebrates, Ichthyology, Invertebrates, Mammalogy, Mineralogy, Mycology, Ornithology, and Zooarchaeology.
Interns will have the opportunity to learn about natural history museums and natural history collections by working closely with collection staff collecting, accessioning, preparing, cataloging, and curating natural history collections. Interns will participate in museum tasks such as identification and preparation of specimens and data management. Other opportunities include participating in tours, outreach presentations at area schools, special events, preparation of displays, and field trips.
