Immerse yourself in the museum this academic year by interning at Williams College Museum of Art. Apply to any of our open positions to have a behind the scenes feel for what it looks like to work at an art museum. Each student position reports directly to a supervisor and will work on tasks integral to WCMA’s strategic plan.
All positions for the Fall 2022/Spring 2023 academic year have been filled.
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.
Summer internship opportunity in the arts for Williams College students!
Williams Summer Arts & Museums Immersion Program is a full-time, paid, nine-week internship for students currently enrolled at Williams College. This summer living and learning program, run by the Williams College Museum of Art (WCMA), will provide students the opportunity to explore what it looks like to work in the arts while engaging with a cohort of fellow students.
During the nine-week program, each student will work 30 hours a week at an arts institution in the Berkshires (WCMA, the Clark Art Institute, or MASS MoCA). Students will be assigned a department and supervisor who will help guide and train the student on their work.
Beyond the 30-hour work week, each Tuesday morning the cohort of students will participate in a variety of professional development opportunities, hands-on workshops, and conversations about museum practice. There will also be networking opportunities with alumni and young professionals, outings around the Berkshires, and a two- to three-day trip to New York City. All will be financially covered by the program.
Please take a moment to read through the positions that are available. Fill out one application below for each position you would like to apply for. Applicants can apply for multiple positions, but must fill out separate applications for each position.
