Careers + internships


Whatever your ultimate career path, a History internship can help you explore job options, while providing valuable work experience and even academic credit.

Helping to create a museum exhibition is just one of the many things our recent majors have accomplished in their history internships. Whether working with authors and editors on a history journal, researching legislation, restoring a historic landmark, or preparing teaching materials, interns gain beyond-the-coursework experience in applying the skills they have honed as History majors, during the regular academic year or the summer.

HIST-X473 allows you to receive academic credit for a part-time or full-time internship experience in any professional field.

The History department also offers funding for internship: The Browder Lewis Summer Internship Prize is open to undergraduate students majoring in History who have been accepted for a summer internship position. Preference will be given to volunteer, unpaid internships but all applicants will be considered.
