The history department’s internship program helps students gain practical experience working in museums and archives or on history-related projects for local organizations.
We have partnerships with several local organizations, including:
- The National Archives at Fort Worth
- The Fort Worth Museum of Science and History
- The Tarrant County Archives
You can also explore other local institutions, and access volunteer opportunities and internship options at local museums and archives. For more information, contact Dr. Alex Hildago.
