Academic internships for undergraduate and graduate students, as well as recent graduates

Create The Experience. Make an Impact. Make History Happen.

The Ohio History Center offers academic internships for undergraduate and graduate students, as well as recent graduates. Internships at the Ohio History Center are available based on individual departments’ needs and available opportunities. Interns gain experience and knowledge in the workings in a museum/library setting and work under the guidance of our professional staff. While working at the Ohio History Center, interns contribute to developments, gain insight into the functions of specific departments, and learn about the Center’s various collections, exhibitions, and programs, as well as opening up a world of curiosity, discovery, and new outlooks.

We are interested in recruiting the best talent for an experience of a lifetime. If you are up to the challenge in making history, we encourage you to apply for an internship at the Ohio History Center.

Spring Semester Internship opportunities currently available in these departments:

  • Production/Multimedia Services
  • History Services/Museum & Library
  • Research Services/ Museum & Library
  • Education Partnerships & Outreach
  • Local History
