Unpaid undergraduate internships are available, on a selected basis, through registration in History 490: Independent Study. Students selected for these programs register for 2 to 4 units (with an expectation of four hours of internship work per week per unit of registration). At least 75% of the internship time should be spent working at the internship site, with the remainder devoted to keeping a journal to be assessed by Department faculty. For more information, contact Professor Lon Kurashige.
Occasionally the Department receives requests from organizations seeking paid student employment (not Work-Study). Recent opportunities have included:
- The Southern California Library for Social Studies and Research (16-20 hours per week greeting library users, answering the phone, assisting researchers, filing, shelving books and other library materials, some data entry).
- The USC-Huntington Early Modern Studies Institute and the Huntington-USC Institute for California and the West (ca. 10 hours per week, working primarily in the local USC Office of these institutes).
