Internships are a very important facet of the curriculum at Goucher College. As such, the faculty members consider well-structured internships to be essential to a student's education. Students of history and historic preservation are placed in agencies, libraries, archives, museums, preservation organizations, historical societies, governmental agencies, and at historic sites for practical experience. The variety of internships that have been completed under the supervision of this department is evidence of the flexible and creative applicability of degrees in history or historic preservation. Students find internship opportunities through the Career Development Office, through faculty and staff members, or on their own.
One recently developed resource is Clio Blog, regularly updated by the History Department and meant to keep students abreast of History and Historical Preservation related internships, jobs and opportunities.
A detailed description of the off-campus experience is published by the Career Development Office each year and fully describes the guidelines and timetable for internships. Students interested in arranging an internship in history or historic preservation should contact their individual academic advisers.
