Each intern invests 70 unpaid work hours into your project. This project must, however, be approved by the Département d’histoire to ensure that it meets the training objectives. These internships are a precious opportunity to gain practical experience, all while becoming familiar with particularities of the workplace in their field.
Students can contribute to your organization’s mission in many ways :
- Conceiving and hosting cultural historical events such as exhibitions and educational activities for diverse public audiences.
- Research and redaction on a variety of historical themes.
- Management and handling of archives for a historical based activity.
- Participating in projects related to history which warrant numerical skills.

- Provide a workspace to the student.
- Offer adequate structure to the intern.
- Plan-specific and varied duties over a period of 70 hours.
