Internships and International Study Opportunities

History internships are available and are often geared toward students’ professional goals. Faculty members work with students to create internships that offer opportunities to practice historical research methods. Students complete internships in a wide variety of settings—local, national and international—in both public and private organizations. The history department also works closely with and supports PLU’s many opportunities for study and work abroad.
