Careers & Internships


Internships are a great way to gain real-world, work-place experience.  MUW students in our department find relevant internships locally, regionally, and nationally that help them create professional networks and connect to mentors.  If you are a history major, the Peyton Internship Scholarship can help you cover the costs of an internship.

The programs in our department, whether history, political science, or interdisciplinary studies, are designed to teach you knowledge and skills that easily transfer to the job market.  Employers want creative thinkers who can problem solve and find or form answers to important questions--and this is what our faculty and curriculum educates students to do.  By focusing on making all students more capable analytical and critical thinkers, effective communicators, and independently motivated life-long learners, our faculty and programs prepare students to enter the 21st century work force.
