‘History at Work’ is an innovative new placement scheme, offering students from the Department of History precious industry-standard experience.
The History at Work scheme will see students paired with some of the UK's most well-respected historical institutes to give them a taste of working with the raw materials of history, held in museums, archives and libraries, in a fully accredited half year module.
As part of the scheme, Goldsmiths has teamed up with an array of partners, including the Wellcome Library, Royal Pharmaceutical Society, London Transport Museum, V&A Museum of Childhood, Cinema Museum, Lewisham Local History and Archives Centre and our very own Library Special Collections, to offer students the opportunity to apply their academic skills within the workplace.
This module is open to second and third year students taking History single and joint honours programmes. Students are invited to apply for places on the scheme each February with the first intake in Autumn 2012. The development of this programme was supported by an HEA teaching development grant and by a Goldsmiths learning enhancement fellowship.
