An internship is a supplemental educational opportunity to explore career options and develop skills related to the Art and Art History undergraduate major in a work or work-related setting. Museum internships and independent research complement coursework in art history. We very much encourage students to pursue research and internship opportunities outside of academic coursework, because these will give you a broader and deeper understanding of art and its institutions.
Internships are generally offered on an unpaid or volunteer basis. Students are encouraged to view the internship as a learning experience related to an art-focused undergraduate education and career development in related fields as opposed to an employment opportunity.
