HIST 399 - Internship in History


Credit(s): 3
Prerequisite(s): ENGL 111 .
The History Program is interested in making available learning experiences in non-classroom settings. Under the Intern Program, qualified juniors and seniors receive academic credit for work done in historical societies, archives, museums, and restorations. The programs assist students in finding appropriate opportunities and ensuring that the actual work is a meaningful supplement to the undergraduate classroom experience. I. Standards: 60 college credits, a minimum overall GPA of 2.75, a minimum GPA in the student’s major of 3.0, and at least six credits in History. II. Credit Options: A) Internships in the local area require a supervisory faculty member and usually will be worth three credits B) A maximum of six credits may be applied toward a History major; and a maximum of three credits toward a History minor. Additional credits may be applied toward the general requirements in Social Science, or may count as Liberal Arts and Sciences electives, or as Open Electives. III. Procedures: Interested students should contact the director of the History Program or the director of the History Intern Program. The application process requires a transcript, a letter of recommendation from a faculty member, the written consent of the student’s advisor, and a departmental interview. The decision of the Programs on whether to allow a student to hold an internship may be appealed to the Office of the Associate Dean of Academic Administration on procedural issues, but not on the matter of the Program’s judgment.
