History – Program Features
Located in the heart of the Metropolitan St. Louis region, Maryville University provides opportunities for history internships in many of its museums, archives and libraries.
History majors interested in teaching at the secondary school level may apply for early entry into the master’s program in education or pursue teacher certification through Maryville’s School of Education.
The list of careers for students of history seems unlimited. Historians are employed as journalists, editors, documentary producers, lawyers, legislative staff, archivists, historic preservationists, teachers. They work in corporations, nonprofits, think tanks, and universities.
Maryville is proud to work with numerous corporate and civic organizations in St. Louis and beyond through partnerships created in support of our academic programs and student opportunities. The list of the University's partners is long, impressive, and ever expanding: Rawlings, Mercy, St. Louis Public Schools, Parkway School District, Edward Jones, Northwestern Mutual, RGA, St. Louis Cardinals, St. Louis Blues, and Maritz, just to name a few.
Our partners provide students with opportunities to experience hands-on involvement in real-world projects, requiring them to hone market-ready skills even before they graduate. Students also experience a variety of work environments and develop a network of industry contacts through these partnerships, so Maryville graduates often have a competitive edge in the job market. In fact, many of our partners provide valuable internships—which can lead to full-time jobs with the firm or agency.
