The Study of History Abroad
Internships & Study Abroad
What about outside the classroom and beyond the campus?
History majors can take their European history on site while participating in Centre’s programs in Strasbourg, France, and London. Other travel options include the College’s program in Mérida, Mexico, and several shorter trips to places ranging from Eastern Europe to Israel to Central Africa to Vietnam.

Internship opportunities abound for history majors—from working in the Imperial War Museum in London, to serving as Congressional aides in Washington, to learning about historical preservation at the Perryville Battlefield Civil War site. Several history majors witnessed history in the making as they served in key leadership positions during the vice presidential debate held on campus October 5, 2000. As a graduating major about to embark upon a career in public relations once noted, “In my history classes and related internships I have learned how to deal with information and writing on a large scale, and to present and defend my opinions in the real world. No project could intimidate me with the kind of preparation I have received at Centre.”
