Internships

The Paul Revere House is currently looking for advanced undergraduate or graduate students interested in internships for the spring of 2022. Internships at the Revere House are an interactive opportunity for students interested in public history and involve participation in most day-to-day site activities (interacting with the public, speaking to school groups, observing lectures) along with a research paper or other project determined by prior agreement between the intern and Revere House internship supervisor. Paul Revere House internships are unpaid but are strongly encouraged to be taken for school credit.
 
Preference will be given to applicants planning do their internship for academic credit. Prospective Revere House interns will preferably have a background in history, American studies, museum studies, historic preservation or another related field, and be prepared to spend 10-20 hours per week on their internship work. The ideal candidate will also have customer service experience and the ability to work independently on research projects.
 

Qualifications: Background in history, American studies, museum studies, decorative arts, preservation studies, or other related field.

Application Deadline: December 6, 2021
