Internships and Partner Organizations


Shippensburg Intern Jennifer Martin speaks with students inside the Bake and Brew House as they take family members on a tour of Pennsbury Manor at the conclusion of Colonial Camp.

Students are able to design a personalized internship experience that will meet their educational needs and professional interests. For-credit internships may be conducted with any of the region's numerous historical organizations or at any appropriate historical site in the United States. An internship can be highly rewarding, offering real world experience in the realm of history, as well as allowing students to showcase their talents, develop new skills, and create long lasting professional relationships.
