Career path: Archival administration

Archivists are custodians of our collective memory and knowledge, and their work is vital in preserving, organizing and making accessible the historical and cultural heritage of society. Partnering with business, government and community to document all aspects of society, they work in a variety of settings, including libraries, museums, government agencies, cultural institutions, corporations and private organizations. Archivists use traditional and new technologies to maintain the integrity and accessibility of archival collections, ensuring that these materials are available for all research purposes.

Archival students at SIS have opportunities to work with collections in and outside of the classroom. Experiential education including paid Alternative Spring Break, paid work scholarships, the Digital Media Projects Lab and active projects in student organizations assure that students graduate with the knowledge that they need to walk right into professional positions.
