Internship Program

11142432_883484865041094_1278842880301246034_o The Samuel Proctor Oral History Program at the University of Florida offers semester-long academic internships, available to graduate and undergraduate students for 3 credit hours, which serve as an introduction to the field of oral history.

Intern duties include learning oral history methodology and field research techniques, including conducting, transcribing, and audit-editing interviews.

In addition to this core structure, internships are tailored to the strengths of our students: are you interested in event planning? Public relations? Audio and film editing? We have the resources and opportunities to help you.

Course Goals

Each semester, SPOHP seeks motivated students to help to reach program goals. The internship is designed to provide students with an introduction to the field of oral history, as well as hands-on experience in the areas of research, interviewing, processing, technology, and educational outreach. It will be taught in Fall 2017 by Graduate Coordinator Raja Rahim.

Each semester, interns accomplish several main goals:

  • Build foundational knowledge of oral history methodology and research use
  • Work on oral history interview processing
  • Conduct an original oral history interview
  • Develop a podcast for the UFDC and iTunes broadcast
  • Contribute to the class group video project

For more information about course goals, scheduling, and project topics, view the Spring 2013 Internship Syllabus and Spring 2014 Internship Syllabus.
