Be a part of history
In a town as old as Nacogdoches, history students have plenty of opportunities for internships and public history experience. Our students work and intern at museums, archives and historical monuments in and around East Texas, as well as at the East Texas Research Center at SFA’s Ralph W. Steen Library.
Here are just a few examples of activities available to students in SFA’s Department of History:
- Build and manage exhibits at the old Nacogdoches Railroad Depot
- Train as docents to give tours locally at the Sterne Hoya and Durst Taylor Houses
- Put on a historic Christmas show and living history displays at Millard’s Crossing Historic Village
- Preserve history by cleaning gravestones at Oak Grove Cemetery
