An internship provides an invaluable learning experience, an opportunity to explore a potential career field, a chance to learn and teach history beyond the classroom, and a vehicle for gaining hands-on experience that will enhance your future professional life. 

Gonzaga's History Department offers course credit for history related internships. We also host campus internships in partnership with Foley Library's Archives and Special Collections and the Woldson Performing Arts Center's Digital Humanities Initiative. 

Consider contacting your local libraries, archives, museums, historic sites, courthouses, government offices, non-profits, religious institutions, and parks about internship opportunities or to create your own voluntary internship. Most organizations would welcome your labor in exchange for you gaining some work experience.
