Internships for History Majors

The History Department strongly encourages both majors and minors to pursue internships related to their course of study. Students interested in an internship should consult with the department internship coordinator prior to submission of application materials (i.e. the Internship Application Form and the Internship Proposal Form below). An approved internship may substitute for one (1) intermediate-level major or minor elective. A student may not enroll in an internship more than twice.
