HIS498Y5 is an internship course for advanced undergraduate History specialists, majors and minors at the University of Toronto, Mississauga. The course offers students with research abilities an opportunity to apply them in work settings outside the university such as museums, historical societies and public archives. This is a chance to develop skills, contribute to the historical record, and make contact with public institutions and professionals outside the university. The internship course is taught by Prof. Elspeth Brown.
In the 2016-17 year, we have 12 students placed at many different organizations throughout the Peel region and Toronto. This year's partner organizations include the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM); Heritage Mississauga; The Ward Museum; the Mississauga Sports Council; Heritage Toronto; the Oakville Museum; the Peel Art Gallery, Musuem, and Archives (PAMA); and the artist Suzy Lake. For more about the organizations, please select the 'placement' tab above.
Our students will be blogging about their experiences this year, and I encourage you to check out their writing under the 'blog' section. Profiles on all students can be found under the 'students' section, and some of their completed projects can be seen under the 'projects' tab.
