About Internships

The College of Humanities strongly encourages all students to participate in an internship. Internships can apply for up to 6 credit hours towards a History degree between all opportunities.


Your internship coordinator, Cameron Vakilian, works with you to explore your interests, options, and may also direct you to appropriate resources. He can provide feedback about navigating through your search process and talk with you about mobilizing this experience to be competitive for full-time employment after graduation.
