Welcome to the Penn Students portal to the Penn Museum- the central hub for all events and opportunities for Penn undergraduate and graduate students. Please note that all programs and meetings are currently virtual, but we are working hard to keep you connected.
Courses, Research, & Fieldwork
The Penn Museum joins in the University’s commitment to supporting original research by undergraduate and graduate students. A range of courses and research seminars are held in the Museum’s Center for the Analysis of Archaeological Materials (CAAM), including a Minor and Graduate Certificate in Archaeological Science. Whether in the labs, classrooms, field sites, galleries, storage, or the archives, we encourage students to explore their interests and academic goals.
You don’t have the spend your summers sorting pottery to be part of the Penn Museum family. Check out these ways to become involved!
Internships, Fellowships, & More
The Penn Museum offers several co-curricular opportunities for undergraduates and graduate students to enhance learning in Penn Museum galleries, laboratories, and study rooms.
