Describe your interest in, exposure to, and experience with oral history.
What do you think are the purposes and values of oral history?
What about the SOHP (its projects, mission, or history) makes you want to intern with us?
Which of the beats listed in the internship packet sounds interesting to you? What do you think you will learn through this beat? What skills and experience do you bring to the table that would be beneficial in this beat? We also cater beats to experience. What skills do you have that might be beneficial to the SOHP as a whole? (Photo-video editing, writing skills, performance etc.)
SOHP interns receive 3 credit hours. Each intern must register through a university department for the course in that department that carries academic credit for external internships. Each department has different rules and guidelines for doing this, so we ask that each applicant identify the department they will register through (students often register through their major’s department). Be sure you understand that department’s protocol for internship credit and process for registering. If accepted to the SOHP internship program, you will need to make arrangements with the appropriate faculty and/or staff member in that department.
Below, please identify the department through which you would register for internship credit if accepted and list the name and contact information for the faculty and/or staff member responsible for overseeing internships. (In some departments, there is one faculty or staff member responsible for overseeing all internship credit; in others, you will need to have a faculty member agree to serve as your advisor/director.)
