Internship Program Description:
The objective of the Internship Program is to offer practical museum training experience to individuals interested in pursuing careers in the arts and museum fields. Interns gain a broad understanding of how a particular department functions within the context of a major museum, as well as specific skills related to that department’s activities. Interns are assigned to a department based on academic background, professional skills, interests, and career goals. Interns participate in the ongoing work of Museum departments and contribute to specific projects or portions of larger departmental initiatives.
