Internship Program

The History Department offers majors the opportunity to gain valuable experience through the department Internship Program (please check out our 2016-17 Internship brochure). The student enrolls in History 4940, earns three hours of credit, all while working at one of the department's internship sites. Each site will offer a unique experience, distinctly different from what a student will gain from a classroom experience. Currently the department has internships available at the following agencies:

  • Boone County Historical Society
  • The Missouri Department of Transportation
  • Missouri State Archives
  • Missouri State Museum
  • The Museum of Missouri Military History
  • National History Day
  • The Riverview Cemetery Association (including The Old City Cemetery)
  • State Historical Society
    • Archives & Manuscripts
    • Oral History
    • Curatorial/Public Programming
    • Preservation/Conservationship Internship
  • University of Missouri Archives
  • The Supreme Court of Missouri
  • Kinder Scholars Program, through the Kinder Institute on Constitutional Democracy

We also have an Undergraduate Internship Resource Guide with suggested summer sites outside of Columbia. See the Undergraduate Internships Resource Guide.
