Program Accomplishments

Undergraduate Education

The ROHA program features a robust undergraduate education component. Each spring semester, Shaun Illingworth, Director of the Rutgers Oral History Archives, offers an oral history class entitled "Introduction to Oral History."  Over thirty undergraduates aid in conducting oral histories and processing the interview transcripts every year.

Each semester, the Public History Internship Program allows two to three History majors the opportunity to participate in the administration of the program as staff members for a semester.  These undergraduates delve into the broader aspects of the program, including oral history techniques, archival management and event planning.
