Awesome Experience!

Here is some verbiage about an awesome experience/internship/co-op/whatever that you can have outside of the classroom! Here is another quick sentence about it. And finally a third sentence about it.

History Club, Phi Alpha Theta- History honor society

The History Department's Practicum program is a component of Old Dominion University's Career Advantage Program which guarantees any student practical work experience related to their major. History majors with junior or senior standing can participate in an internship which is tailored to an individual's interest and skills. Our students have been historical interpreters at Colonial Williamsburg and the National Park Service's Colonial National Historical Park. They have helped to create exhibits at the MacArthur Memorial Museum, Mariner's Museum, and the War Memorial Museum of Virginia. They have researched the architectural and historic significance of local landscapes for Virginia's Department of Historic Resources. Participants must be highly motivated! Students are expected to work 8­ to 15 hours a week for a semester and will earn 3 credits towards their major.
