Career Experience

Build your credentials and shape your experience while still in school

We have relationships with local and regional agencies and organizations looking for inquisitive and ambitious students to fulfill internship roles.

Our students have interned at the Smithsonian and at museums and national agencies throughout the United States.

In Lincoln, students have completed internships with the Asian Community and Cultural Center, the Indian Center, the National Park Service Midwest Archeological Center (one of two major NPS research laboratories), the Nebraska State Historical Society, and the People’s City Mission, to name just a few.

Information on internships is available at Career Services in the Nebraska Union or by talking to faculty members.

To enroll for internship credits, complete the department's Internship Contract Form with your faculty supervisor and turn it into the departmental office to receive a permission code.
