NIAHD offers the Field School in Public History in both the Fall and Spring semesters. There are two parts to this course: first, class meetings that include readings and discussions about Public History; and second, an internship at a museum or historic site.
Internships give students the opportunity to gain hands-on experience in Public History. Students will work with NIAHD staff to define their internship and to identify a supervisor. It is possible for students to complete internship hours during the summer and to have year-long internships if they make arrangements with NIAHD staff.
