Departmental Internship Requirements

Many majors require or encourage an internship as a part of their requirements. These internship course descriptions are taken from the 2009-2011 course catalog.  All internship courses listed in the college catalog must be registered for academic credit through the internship office.  

A student may register for an internship with any member of the department. Off campus learning experiences must have explicit historical content. The student, the faculty sponsor, and the site supervisor will negotiate a learning agreement which specifies the student’s goals, means of achieving them, and the manner in which the internship will be evaluated. A standard internship will involve ten hours per week and earn four credits. Only one internship may count toward the ten courses required for a history major. Every semester. (1–4 credits)
