Internships and Service


The following is a partial list of organizations that periodically hire interns for work related to the history major.  Some are part-time, others are full-time for summer or post-graduate work. Some of these opportunities may be incorporated into a for-credit tutorial.  If you are interested in the possibility of receiving academic credit for work on an unpaid internship, please contact Dr. Asif Siddiqi at siddiqi@fordham.edu.
