The History Department, like most departments of the College of Arts & Sciences, offers qualified students the opportunity to integrate theory and research with practical experience through the Internship Program.
The program is designed to help undergraduate students build a relationship with professionals in the private and public sector, make difficult career choices, experience an organization without a lengthy obligation, and discover long-term interests and aspirations.
The internship often provides valuable work experience, letters of recommendation, personal references, and sometimes a job offer. The Internship Program maintains the academic integrity of the liberal arts and sciences curriculum through careful planning and by providing uniform requirements and careful supervision. While field work experiences are primarily found in the Delaware Valley, an internship might take place nationally. Through Villanova's Washington Center affiliation, interns live and work in the nation's capital.
