The Museum offers opportunities for internships that provide real-world experience and insight into the museum profession. Successful candidates will be supported, informed, and encouraged by Museum staff over the course of their journey from student to professional.

Our interns will work directly with Museum staff and be embedded in a department at the Museum. The Museum staff is a small cohesive unit, so there will be opportunities for work across departments, making valuable connections in the operations of an art museum and non-profit organization. The Museum experience is not limited to people interested in museums or art. The Museum is a highly complex non-profit business with divisions in administration, art, education, marketing, public relations, and more.

Internships are offered during the summer, spring, and fall semesters. Please see our openings below for specific information about our available internships.

To intern at the Museum, we ask that you commit to a minimum of ten (10) hours a week. Daily shifts must be at least three (3) hours long.

Please note that your application will only be considered complete with the submission of the online application and receipt of your Faculty Reference Form.
