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 coordinator. Assessment will be based on both academic and professional criteria.
Internships offer students challenging opportunities to develop the professional skills of the historian and to explore careers in the field. Besides placement at Archives and Special Collections at the Kent State University Library and at the Kent State University Museum, the Department of History has sponsored interns at a variety of institutions within Northeast Ohio and beyond.
