Graduate Internships

Graduate internships are immersive and responsive, and are offered in a range of departments at the museum. Students in the Williams Graduate Program in the History of Art work directly with a museum staff member throughout the academic year for eight hours a week. Interns are invited to all meetings including all-staff, curatorial brainstorming, and acquisitions; behind-the-scenes opportunities in art storage and installations; professional development workshops; and special moments with visiting artists, scholars, and museum professionals.

Graduate Internships are paid positions. Contact Elizabeth Gallerani for more information.
