The region surrounding Camden, including South Jersey, Philadelphia, and Southeastern Pennsylvania, is rich in opportunities for aspiring public historians. All students enrolled in the public history track of the Rutgers-Camden M.A. program are required to complete one internship for credit. Ongoing involvement with area cultural organizations is encouraged.
Our internship policies reflect best practices as outlined by the National Council on Public History. To guide you in seeking and completing an internship, download the Graduate Internship Guidelines (PDF), last update 12/18/2011.
Graduate students are responsible for seeking their own internship placements. The following organizations have posted internship opportunities or have hosted Rutgers-Camden interns in the past. The links on this blog, especially the jobs board on philaculture.org, also will be useful in your search.
