Humanities/History Internship

The Humanities/History Internship offers a variety of fieldwork experiences designed to advance your career decisions and goals.

We provide placements for academic credit in such fields as Communications/PR/Social Media, Film/Broadcast/Journalism, History/Philosophy/Law, Museum Studies/Art Administration, International Studies, and more. Any CASL Major can receive academic credit with the Humanities/History Internship.
