Internship in Historic Preservation

Internship Requirements for the Certificate in Historic Preservation

An internship involves registration for 3 credits under the rubric of:

082:447 or 448, “Internship in Historic Preservation” for undergraduate students

One internship is required for the Certificate Program in Historic Preservation. For each internship the student must put in 14 days of work at the chosen institution. The student keeps a journal – a brief account, day by day, or work done, etc., and also submits a two- to three-page summary of his/her activities. These should be handed in to the Director of the Program in Historic Preservation in the Art History Department by the last day of classes – preferably a week or so before. (Those enrolled in the course retroactively, in the fall semester, for a summer internship may hand in the journal & report close to the end of the fall semester).

The intern is not paid by the host institution, which may offer money only for transport and meals. Most host institutions will consider commuting time as part of the day, but the student must negotiate this individually.

The student’s supervisor at the host institution will be requested to provide an evaluation on a standard form, which will be sent out shortly before the end of the semester. For a student doing an internship in the summer, requirements are the same except that as there are no provisions for 447, 448/ 590, 591 in the summer, the student will do the internship and then register for the relevant course(s) the following autumn.

Students planning to undertake an internship as part of the Certificate Program should consult with Professor Tod Marder, Director of the Program, well in advance to review opportunities and receive approval for the internship.
