MSUM-400 Museum Studies Internship

The internship for museum studies is designed for students who wish to develop and apply skills related to the museum and public exhibition-related professions (for example, a museum-related, non-profit agency or government office, a museum publication or periodical, a position related to museum or library conservation, exhibition sites in state or national parks, or other similar institutions). Students will gain experience in real work situations and will work under the supervision of a professional in his or her chosen field. Overseeing faculty and their departments offer help in locating and applying for appropriate internships, but students are also encouraged to propose and develop their own positions, subject to approval by the director of museum studies. 2 - 4 SH.
