Internships in History provide students with the opportunity to combine academic training and practical work experience in museums, libraries, historical societies, and related institutions. Internships for course credit require a minimum commitment of 10 hours per week during the academic year. Students are required to arrange their placements and supervisors with the help of the Public History Internship coordinator, Professor John R. Jameson, 330-672-2882, Assessment will be based on both academic and professional criteria.
