HIST 394 Internship (2 or 4)
The Internship in the Department of History is designed to allow students to have the opportunity to work in a local museum or archive, at a local historical site, or with other organizations engaged in projects of a historical nature. The course allows students the opportunity to explore the kind of work that professionals in the field do, while assisting a local heritage organization in their work.

Students completing the 2 semester hours option complete 3-8 hours a week at the Internship site, remain in regular communication with the Internship director, and complete a report on their experience. Students completing the 4 semester hours option complete at least 10 hours a week at the Internship site, remain in regular communication with the Director, and complete a major project or paper upon completion.
