Using this resource guide: Created by a team of Career Diversity Fellows in graduate programs across Texas, this guide to graduate internship opportunities for history PhDs in Texas was designed for faculty, staff, and students interested in exploring professional development outside of their departments. While most of these internships are limited to the state of Texas, this guide provides useful resources that can be used by graduate students in other states when applying for internships, including an internship toolkit and checklist. It can also serve as a model for faculty interested in developing similar resources for their students.

Purpose of this guide: This guide was developed to accomplish three main goals:

  1. Provide inspiration for students seeking internship opportunities in Texas.
  2. Help students think critically about skills development and exploration of versatile careers outside the professoriate.
  3. Aid students in their exploration with public engagement of local history and other audiences.

Skills this resource addresses: Collaboration, Communication, Intellectual Self-Confidence, Digital and/or Quantitative Literacy
