CAHSS Alum Credits Internship and Study Abroad at NSU for launching Academic and Career Interests

Victoria Jones, B.A.

Victoria Jones, B.A., graduate of the bachelor’s program in History in the Department of History and Political Science in NSU’s College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences (CAHSS), credits a 2015 internship at the NSU Art Museum in Fort Lauderdale with exposing her to museum studies.

“I discovered my passion for public history and museum studies and it was during a study abroad with Dr. Kilroy that I became interested in archives and special collections, specifically,” she said.

Since graduating from NSU in 2016, Jones began work on an M.A. in History at the University of North Florida. She anticipates completion at the end of 2018. She recently participated in a fellowship at Jacksonville’s Museum of Science and History, where she worked on a project involving one of the museum’s collections. She also completed a summer internship in corporate archives at Southwest Airlines’ headquarters in Dallas. The internship focused on archiving the company’s history and culture by preserving materials both physical and digital. This historic content is available to the airline’s employees and customers.

“This internship was an amazing chance to work in an archive that not many people are granted access to,” Jones said. “My team and department were fantastic and I learned not just about archive management and aviation history, but also about working in a corporate environment.”
