Internships OR PRACTICAL EXPERIENCES
Internships or practical experiences are an integral element of the Book Studies Concentration. You will complete two internships (paid or supported by Praxis) that enable you to acquire practical, first-hand knowledge. Check out our list of recommended local, regional, national and international internships by clicking on the link to the right. But you may also research and secure your own internship, in consultation with your concentration adviser. Recently Book Studies concentrators have interned at the Library of Congress, the San Francisco Public Library, the Publications Department of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Grolier Club, the Bodleian Library at Oxford University, and many other exciting places.
After you discover an internship you must get your concentration adviser's permission by using the Internship/Practical Experience Approval Form below (see the Guidelines for Retroactive Approval, also below, if you seek approval for something you did in the past). Right after the internship is over you and your internship supervisor (i.e. the person you worked for) should fill out the Evaluation Form and then submit that to your concentration adviser.
