Internships and Experiential Learning

History majors take creative, yet practical, courses that allow them to gain a well-rounded understanding of the past, including a “lab” course that explores methods of researching particular topics. There are course offerings in public and oral history, as well as opportunities for students to pursue collaborative research, working one-on-one with individual professors.

The department sponsors Phi Alpha Theta, a history honors society, and a History Club open not only to students majoring in history, but also to those students who have an interest in learning about the past. Each fall, the department hosts the Rothenberg Seminar, bringing some of the leading authorities on military history to our campus.

History majors have studied abroad at Oxford Brooks University and Westminster College, Oxford, England. Our majors have also studied at the prestigious St. Andrews University in Scotland, the University of Swansea in Wales, and most recently participated in our semester program

in Prague, Czech Republic. Students may take history courses at Westminster and transfer the credits to High Point University. History majors have also completed internships locally with legal firms and historical sites such as Old Salem and the High Point Museum. One recent graduate completed an internship with the famous Heritage Foundation in Washington, D.C.
