The WPHL serves as a bridge between the university and the broader community in South Florida. In leveraging the resources of a large public university in the service of the community, the WPHL works with many museums, non-profits, organizations, and cultural institutions throughout South Florida and beyond. Through these partnerships, the WPHL offers regular paid internships for students to contribute to the great work being done at our community partner sites while receiving necessary training in a wide range of market-ready skills, such as digitization, museum curation, programming, preservation, and archiving. 

All interns are also eligible to enroll in a Public History Internship as a means to receive college credit for this skills-oriented experience. For more information on that, contact FIU’s Public History Coordinator, Dr. Julio Capó, Jr. at

Our offerings are diverse and change every semester, so be sure to check back for new opportunities.
