The History Department is happy to announce that we have four $2500.00 awards for History students who have internships for this summer. Undergraduate majors and History MA students are eligible for this award. These awards are made possible by a generous donor to the department.
The application deadline is May 29, 2022.
If you would like advice on appropriate internship locations, placements, etc., please contact Professor Amy Tyson, Director of Internships for the History Department (ATYSON2@depaul.edu).
Internships provide invaluable work experience and will give you an important advantage in your job search. Your internship experience can also earn you academic credit.
Students are encouraged to serve as interns in organizations or institutions in order to undertake a study in conjunction with a research, data collection or administrative position.
Undergraduate majors in History may enroll in the Public History internship course (HST 392) but it is not a requirement.
