Two Historical Museums Offer New Internship Opportunities

Thanks to agreements between Truman and two separately operated historical museums, Truman students have the opportunity to apply for summer internship positions in both St. Louis and Kansas City.

Both the Missouri History Museum in St. Louis and the National World War I Museum in Kansas City are seeking individuals with strong written and verbal communication skills, strong organizational skills, the ability to work independently on multiple tasks and knowledge of basic computer skills.

Once selected, students can be assigned to a variety of areas based off interest and skill level, including archives, public relations, marketing, educational programming, museum development or visitor services.

All eight-week, 20-hour per week internships will coincide with the University’s eight-week summer session. Although positions are unpaid, students can earn between three to five credit hours. Selected individuals will need to enroll for academic internship credit with an eligible department. The Department of History will approve credit, but students should verify with a departmental head or advisor if interested in other credit.

For more information or to get an application, contact Jeff Gall at 660.785.7747 or The deadline to apply is Dec. 1.
