The History Intern Program offers training and direct experience working in one of several archives, historical and genealogical societies, or museums in southern Ohio and Kentucky. Students can choose to work at a number of different locations throughout the area. These include Ross County Historical Society in Chillicothe, the Campus Martius Museum in Marietta, the Highland Museum and Discovery Center in Ashland, Kentucky, the Southeast Ohio History Center in Athens, and the Our House Tavern in Gallipolis, Ohio. Internships are also available at the University of Rio Grande Archives and Museum on the main campus. Interns work with professional staff, interact with the public, conduct research, provide administrative support, and learn about local and regional history. Students considering a career in museum or archival studies are encouraged to apply.
Offered for 1-3 Semester hours.
