Being so close to Des Moines, Iowa, affords our history students many opportunities to obtain internships through the Iowa History Center where they can put their study of history to use. Students serve as research assistants in many of their internships, producing work that will be used in public displays or educational programs. The internship experience is a valuable experience for our students to make their own contributions to the preservation and promotion of history.
