Undergraduate Internships

SOHP Interns from the 2018-19 academic year presenting at the Oral History Association’s Annual Meeting in 2019.

The SOHP’s internship program provides experiential education in the intellectual, organizational, and practical work of oral history. Interns will work collaboratively on a research project. Interns will learn to conduct interviews and engage with the practice of oral history; assist with ongoing SOHP projects; collection management, digital exhibits, and public engagement; and participation in a weekly seminar that deepens academic understanding of oral history.

The SOHP is currently accepting applications for fall 2020 internships. The deadline to apply is Friday, March 6, 2020 by 5PM EST. Follow this link to submit your application materials.

Four interns are accepted into the program and enroll in History 593: Exploring the US South Hands On and Ears Open: Internship at the Southern Oral History. Interns work a total of twelve hours per week (five hours of organizational work, five hours on the research project, and two hours of seminar). They will earn three hours of internship credit through the requirements of their home departments.
