Hands-on, real world experience

Internships provide future public history practitioners with hands-on real world experience. All students pursuing degree options in public history are required to complete an internship. We know the experiences gained through internships are invaluable when it comes to securing employment after graduation. The Wisconsin Historical Society's Northern Field Services Office, which is located in the UWEC History Department, helps students find placements in Wisconsin, while other partners help us to place interns across the nation.
