Find 2019 History Internships

The Industry

Are you looking for history internships? In today’s information age, we’re reminded that what we post online is forever. For most of human history, people didn’t have an online footprint, and events were not live streamed. But traces of people and events exist in the materials from their time. Detectives of the past, historians meticulously comb through those materials (photographs, interviews, government records, diaries, newspapers, etc.) to piece together a narrative of a person, civilization, or event. Their findings help us understand the social, cultural, geographic, and political forces that shaped today’s world.

The Internship

A history internship will give you the opportunity to indulge your inquisitiveness and unleash your critical thinking skills. You could do everything from processing, cataloging, and archiving documents and artifacts, to combing through historical documents and drawing conclusions about a nearly forgotten event. Be sure to use the history internship opportunity to familiarize yourself with digital research tools.

For most history professions, you’ll need a master’s or doctorate in history or a related degree. A bachelor’s degree in history is sufficient for a career in the business world.

The Career Options

It’s an exciting time to study history, as cutting edge technology allows more discoveries of the past. History buffs can find employment at research institutes, high schools or universities, museums, government agencies, the tourism industry, and historical associations, or at businesses in careers such as researchers and educators. If your job involves research, you may work in an office setting with access to archive material and/or travel to collect artifacts or conduct interviews.

The Outlook

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment for historians is projected to grow 2% over the next decade, which is slower than average, while employment for archivists, curators, and museum workers is projected to grow 7% over the next decade, which is about average.
