Extracurricular Activities

For information about internships in the Department of History, schedule an appointment with Dr. Sheri Shuck-Hall, internship coordinator. You should bring a copy of your resume, including your education and previous work experience.

Prior to the meeting, you should:

  • Identify the agency where you would like to work. It helps to have a first and second choice.
  • Identify the type of job you would like to do (for example, archives, curatorial assistance, research, administrative work).
  • Identify when you wish to begin your internship.

Once an internship location is determined and confirmed with the organization, you will:

  • Complete a practicum contract and return it to Dr. Shuck-Hall
  • Register for HIST 491 (using and add/drop form, which requires Dr. Shuck-Hall's signature)
  • Complete at least 140 hours of work at the internship site prior to the end of the semester in which you register
  • Submit a paper detailing the state of the field in which you worked
  • Submit a 1-2 page summary evaluating your internship
  • Complete a practicum journal on a bi-weekly basis
