Internships totaling 400 hours are required for students to complete their Public History programs of study. These internships fall under the "Capstone Project" and can run between 3 and 9 months after four required courses are completed. The internship can average between 12 and 40 hours per week in museums, archives, libraries, historical societies, heritage parks, or similar Public History venues. The Program Director -- Dr. David Ulbrich -- will work with students on case-by-case bases to identify legitimate internship opportunities and later to coordinate with staffs at those institutions to ensure that students receive proper supervision and create significant products during their internships.
