History Internships

Undergraduate Internship -- History Course 498

History internships combine academic training with the acquisition of skills in archival work, historical preservation, and applied history. In recent years, Citadel students have interned locally with the South Carolina Historical Society and the Avery Research Center at the College of Charleston, as well as on campus through the Daniel Library Archive and Museum and The Citadel Oral History Program. Students have also arranged summer internships with institutions outside of Charleston. The explosive growth of heritage tourism coupled with the richness and breadth of Charleston’s archival, library, and museum community provide us with many compelling options for internships.

Internship experiences have been appealing and successful for at least three reasons:

1. Practical work experiences serve as useful opportunities for students to enhance their skills as they explore career options.

2. Internships often complement students’ classroom education and match their historical interests.

3. Working with agency partners is excellent preparation for citizenship, work, and life, while it strengthens The Citadel’s ties to the local community.


Students should follow these steps to arrange history internships.
