Internships & Careers

Get ready for internships and a career of historic proportions. With your history degree, you'll have both.


Academic and non-credit internships are available. Both the History Department and the Career Development Center can help you find an internship. Recent placements include the Bostonian Society, Boston National Historical Park, Massachusetts State Archives, Paul Revere House, Office of the Governor of Massachusetts, and the National Geographic Society, to name a few.


History students at Suffolk University develop skills in logical reasoning, research, marshaling evidence, argumentation, and written and oral expression. Learning opportunities range from project development and management to internships at Boston's historic sites, in government and business, and in community nonprofits. 

Some of our recent graduates are working at the Massachusetts State House, Freedom Trail Foundation, Boston Children’s Museum, and Boston City Hall. Others have earned advanced degrees in business, law, history, and other fields.
