Internships are a great way of gaining on-the-job experience while you’re still working on your degree. In some cases, students can get course credit for an internship (particularly if it is part of a research project).

The Twin Cities is a great place to find internships that draw directly upon students’ knowledge about diverse religious groups and will, in turn, deepen students’ ability to engage with people from diverse religious backgrounds.

Minnesota Historical Society Internships

Several historically-minded religious studies majors and minors have landed internships with the Minnesota Historical Society. Some have served as docents at historical sites, while others have researched historical events, curated exhibits, and developed programs. These real-world experiences have helped prepare them for careers in areas such as public interpretation/interface, policy development, and non-profit work.
