Students may gain valuable professional experience and insights into their studies by participating in internships. Elon students may work with a faculty mentor to conduct a graded internship at a theoretically limitless number of sites. Some elect to remain close to campus (the Alamance Battleground, Haw River Museum, Charlotte Hawkins Brown State Historic Site, etc.), while others have pursued internships further afield (the Smithsonian Institute, History South Australia, etc.).
