History Internships

History majors have the opportunity to gain valuable work experience while earning elective credits by participating in the department's internship program (HTY 300). 

Internships are available to selected history majors in local historic houses, historical societies, museums, and archives.  Past internship partners have included the Maine Historical Society Museum and Library, the Maine Humanities Council, the Brick Store Museum in Kennebunkport, the Muskie Archives, the Maine State Museum, Greater Portland Landmarks, Volunteer Lawyers Project, the Osher Map Library, and many others.
