Missouri History Museum Offers New Internship Opportunity

Thanks to an agreement between Truman and the Missouri History Museum in St. Louis, Truman students have the opportunity to apply for two summer internship positions.

The museum is 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.

The eight-week, 20-hour per week internship 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 jgall@truman.edu. The deadline to apply is Dec. 1.
