Subject: Oral History Internship at Cold War Museum

 

The Cold War Museum (in Warrenton, VA) is looking for Mason students to work with the museum staff on an oral history project.  The project’s goal is to conduct and archive interviews with veterans who served in military and intelligence capacities during the Cold War.  Students will receive academic credit towards their History degree (for undergrads, 3 credits for 135 hours of work; 3 credits for 160 hours of work).  Students who wish may also learn about all aspects of the day-to-day operations of a small history museum, including tours, education, exhibits, the collections, and back office operations, depending on the student’s level of interest, but the academic credit will focus on the conducting and archiving of the interviews.
