Philadelphia Museum of Art Summer 2014 Internships
June 10 – August 19, 2014
The Museum Studies Internship Program is an internship opportunity that exposes interns to the inner workings of a major metropolitan museum, promoting an awareness of careers in the field through experiences not available in most academic settings. The Museum selects a diverse group of talented undergraduate and graduate students from a highly competitive, international pool of candidates.
The Museum Studies Internship Program offers unpaid volunteer internships each summer to applicants who:
- are currently enrolled undergraduate or graduate students, or who have graduated within the same calendar year as the Internship;
- have completed at least their sophomore year of college by the end of the 2013 spring semester;
- have maintained at least a 3.0 grade point average.
About the Program
The program runs Monday through Friday, for nine weeks. The Internship is made up of two parts: Interns work for three and one-half days per week in a Museum department; one and one-half days a week they participate in a Museum Studies course.
- Interns are placed according to departmental needs that vary from year to year. See a list of past placements: http://www.philamuseum.org/information/48-159-50.html?page=2
