Puzzled how to land a job or internship as an anthropology major?


This October CAS is partnering with Vocatio to help students identify and hopefully land great internship or job opportunities. Vocatio’s Career Hacks program will take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7-9 p.m. for three weeks in October, culminating in a showcase to employers. Students will have an opportunity to find jobs that best fit them, increase their career-readiness, work one-on- one with potential employers, and land an internship or a job.

This video can give you more of a feel for the program. It is specifically designed for liberal arts majors!

Students who participated last year found it very helpful and many got internship/job offers, so please consider signing up. The program is limited to 200 students. If you are interested sign up by going to this site.


U.S. PIRG Needs Your Help


My name is Andre Delattre and I’m the Executive Director of U.S. PIRG, the Public Interest Research Group. I’ll be working this year to connect passionate and driven Miami University students with the jobs that will help them make meaningful change and fight for the public interest.

Let me explain what I mean by public interest group: Every day, whether it’s in Washington, D.C., a state capitol, or a corporate boardroom, someone is making a decision that will affect all of us – it could be about our health, our safety, or our democracy. Special interest groups spend billions of dollars to influence these decisions. Someone needs to speak for the public interest. That’s what we do.

Right now, we’re working on everything from reducing the overuse of antibiotics in the food industry to defending consumer protections on Wall Street. We don’t see these issues as liberal or conservative. They’re just problems we shouldn’t tolerate in this day and age. And we’re willing to work with everybody we can to solve them.

This non-partisan, result-oriented approach works. We have a 45-year track record of winning hundreds of new laws and other policies, making the lives of people in states across the country healthier, safer and more secure.

I got my start with U.S.PIRG as a student volunteer during my time at Berkeley. Over three decades later, I am grateful to those who inspired me to take on this meaningful work. That’s why I’m looking for Miami University students – so I can provide them the opportunity to work on issues that they care about and immediately make a difference.

You can learn more about U.S. PIRG here.

I’m hoping you can forward the note below to students on campus. It’s a little more information about our jobs and how to apply.

Thanks in advance for your help and I look forward to working with you this year!

U.S. PIRG is about standing up for the public interest and doing all we can to win – the same approach that over the past 45 years has helped us win literally hundreds of victories. Because of these laws and other policies, people are recycling more and wasting less, buying healthier and safer products, getting a better deal on credit card fees and student loans, driving cleaner and safer cars, drinking cleaner water, and living longer, healthier lives.

We’re looking for smart, passionate, and driven students who work well in a team and want to make a tangible difference. Specifically, we’re hiring our 2018 class of U.S. PIRG Fellows and Digital Campaigners to help run powerful campaigns for the public interest.

We need students from Miami University to join our fight and become leaders who will stand up for what’s right.

The Fellowship program is a great entry point to fact-based advocacy. During your 2-year fellowship, you will learn everything you need to know to become an advocate for issues like consumer protection, government reform, and modernizing our elections.

As a Digital Campaigner, you will support our campaign team by running a powerful digital campaign to tackle problems like the overuse of antibiotics and overturning Citizen’s United.

New Summer 2018 MUDEC Luxembourg Internship Program

luxembourg-town-scene-1020x400The Miami University John E. Dolibois European Center in Luxembourg has developed an exciting and unique internship program open to students studying at MUDEC each spring. As an extension of the semester program, students are invited to apply for one of several internship opportunities in Luxembourg that will begin immediately following the spring semester and continue into July. This is a fantastic opportunity not only for students to study in one of the capitals of Europe for a semester, but to gain significant global professional experience as well, spending nearly 8 consecutive months in the Grand Duchy if participating in the new internship program.

Specific opportunities and detailed information regarding each will be available at Miami University’s Career Fair on 13 September, 2017 from 1300-1730 in Millett Hall. Just look out for the Luxembourg signage at the event to locate our table. After the event, detailed information for each internship opportunity will be made available on our website.

Again, summer internships are contingent upon having successfully completed the preceding spring semester at MUDEC, and there is still time to apply for spring 2018!

Many of our opportunities do not have language requirements, so do not be discouraged if you lack proficiency in French or German. For the summer internship extension only, the fee covering housing and other required items will be approximately $1,721.

While the regular MUDEC program and the new internship extension are open to all majors, area-specific internships will be offered in Political Science, Languages, Journalism, Communications, all areas of Business/Finance/Marketing/Accounting, Nutrition, Public Health, Fine Arts, European Studies, International Studies, Professional Writing, and Media Studies.

Off the Beaten Track Summer School for Anthropology and Ethnography


Gozo (Malta) – Europe

Session 1: June 5 – June 24, 2018
Session 2: July 2 – July 21, 2018
Session 3: July 29 – August 17, 2018

About the Summer School
The Off The Beaten Track program started in 2006 and is now – with 24 editions over the past 12 years – the longest standing anthropology field school in the world. Our basecamp is located on the islet of Gozo, one of the three inhabited islands of the Maltese Archipelago in the heart of the Mediterranean. The program offers a unique opportunity to acquire ‘in the field’ experience. The islands present a balance of past and present, where rural Mediterranean traditions intersect with foreign influence in small villages.

The Malta Summer School international faculty and staff help connect students and locals. They facilitate and monitor the progress of each student’s project and guide all interested participants through the process of publishing the results of their research. The program is residential and conducted in English.

Please find our basic brochure attached to this e-mail.

Previous knowledge or experience is not required. We aim for an individually tailored program that can start at any level. Even PhD research (or pre-research) can be included and guided. The school has a strong socio-cultural focus, but any topic can be covered in the individual program of the student. Each session has a maximum of 16 participants with a 2:1 student to staff ratio.
