Opportunities for Students
The following opportunities outside of the classroom add substantially to the experience of being a student in the history department.
Available both in Ithaca and off site, these can be for credit or for the experience in public history. From National Parks to law firms, recent student interns have worked in a variety of fields.
An ambitious project in a student's senior year can earn "honors" on a student's diploma. This is a great opportunity for anyone interested in an intensive project and is particularly good preparation for students interested in graduate study.
Students at Ithaca College can join our chapter of the history honors society.
Each Spring brings several opportunities for experience in public speaking and presenting student work in a variety of venues: on campus, in a regional conference, and more.
A great opportunity to expand the undergraduate experience, off-site study also offers history courses that can count toward our degrees.
Both the H&S Dean's office and the IC Provost's office may have opportunities to fund particular student projects, such as internships, collaborative work with faculty, and travel to archives or to a conference.
