Internship Opportunities

Whether the student plans on a career in public history, needs some hands-on exploration of career options, or just wants some pre-professional experience on the resume, Avila's internship program in history is a useful choice. Student interns receive three hours of credit for working in local historical archives, museums, or sites performing a variety of functions. Some of the projects student interns have done include:

  • digging out historical information for a museum exhibit about dairy farming,

  • designing and assembling a traveling trunk to teach about Civil War medicine,

  • cataloging photos and personal records about life in the suburbs and

  • photographing historic buildings.


Among the local historical institutions that provide internships are:

  • Johnson County Historical Museum

  • John Wornall House Museum
