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 History and Culture Center
  • Missouri State Archives
  • Missouri State Museum
  • The Museum of Missouri Military History
  • National History Day
  • State Historical Society
    • Archives & Manuscripts
    • Oral History
    • Curatorial/Public Programming
    • Preservation/Conservation Internship
  • University of Missouri Archives
  • The Supreme Court of Missouri
  • Kinder Scholars Program, through the Kinder Institute on Constitutional Democracy
  • Special Collections and Rare Books

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