History Department Field Experience:
Internships are available to American Studies students through the History Department’s course called Field Experience. Designed to introduce students to actual historical work, this course places students with an historical society, museum, library, or similar institution, where they serve a minimum of nine hours per week for one semester as a volunteer working in the arranging of archival material, exhibits, etc. This course may not be offered annually. Students may use this experience for one of their courses from the Core A1 bank of courses in the American Studies major.
