History majors take advantage of internships to enhance their learning of history through hands-on, intensive, and practical experience in a number of ways. In recent years, History majors have completed summer internships at the Saratoga Battlefield National Park and a number of historical sites sponsored by the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission.
Internships do not count toward the minimum requirement in the major, but do count as an elective toward graduation requirements. Internships are graded S/U. Students can complete their internship over the summer or during the academic year.
