Local History Internships

Students at Purchase College can earn 2 to 4 credits learning about history at a local historical society, museum, archive, or town hall.

The Local History Internship affords students the opportunity of one or two semesters’ work experience at one of the 60 agencies that participate in this unique, hands-on program. These historical societies, archives, municipal collections, and library local history collections are located in Westchester, Rockland, and Putnam counties and in the Bronx. The internship is a core course of the Institute for Westchester and Local History.

The supervised internships involve working with documentary material, including papers, photographs, and maps. Project descriptions have included:

Prerequisite: HIS 3721/Local History Workshop

Internship Approval and Placement
Interested students should consult with the director of the local history program, who approves participation and places interns based on both the student’s and the agencies’ needs:
