My goal is to find a prestigious place of employment that will allow me, not only, to utilize my current skills, but also help me in gaining new skills. I am looking for a challenging career that will help me grow professionally and allow me to earn a good reputation amongst my peers. Research is now my current aspiration and I know that fieldwork is something I would love to experience throughout my life.
My classes here at SIUe have given me the knowledge necessary for excavation of fossils and archaeological artifacts. I have also taken human anatomy and physiology classes that have aided in my education of forensic sciences. My chemistry classes have allowed me to learn basic lab techniques that can be applied in all venues. I have been named to the Dean's List the past two semesters and am a member of Phi Alpha Theta, a history honors society.
This program engages its participants in the prospecting and excavation methods used by paleontologists. I will spend a week in Montana in the field everyday from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM. I will attend guest lectures in the evenings as well as prepare the fossils found that day. Instruction on more finely tuned excavation and preserving methods will also be included.
