How to Obtain an Internship
There is a specific internship course in History – HIST 199 - that may be taken for 3 or 6 semester hours’ credit. Procedures for internships require students to secure the agreement of a faculty member to sponsor the academic side of the internship, securing the participation of an on-site supervisor, the development of a reading list related to the field of the internship, & the determination of the number of hours on-site a student will be required to complete.
Typically, students will approach faculty with a request for an internship at a specific site or in a particular area of study and the faculty member will work out details. The internship is evaluated by both the faculty member and the one-site supervisor and the student's grade reflects the combination of those two evaluations.
