The History and Archaeology Department offers opportunities for internships and fieldwork within the public and private museums, archives, libraries, and government agencies, which incorporate an appropriate program of “hands-on” experience. For example, our students have both work-study and volunteer opportunities to intern at the Erie County Historical Society and Erie Art Museum. The Department also offers students the opportunities to intern for one semester at the Washington Center in Washington, D.C. Such internships help to prepare students for a range of careers.
Believe It: Erie, the fourth largest city in Pennsylvania, is located within a two-hour drive of Pittsburgh, Cleveland and Buffalo.
