History majors regularly engage in a diverse array of internship opportunities. Students frequently intern at the Brandeis University archives and other historical repositories throughout New England. History internships also allow students to use their skills outside of the archive or museum context. In recent years, for example, students have interned at the White House, Congress, the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts and with an impressive range of leading business, law, entertainment and public service organizations.
