The Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission (PHMC) offers internships to undergraduate and graduate students interested in pursuing a career in public history. PHMC has supported the Keystone Program for over 25 years and always strives to offer quality internships throughout all of the PHMC’s bureaus. Interns have opportunities to work with professional staff in archival, curatorial, historic preservation, and museum education fields. Many employers look beyond a student’s college degree and an internship is a great way to gain professional experience.
