Internships

Wolfsonian interns build their skills as aspiring arts professionals through hands-on training and exposure to a wide variety of museum operations and practices.

All undergraduate, graduate, and recently graduated students are eligible to apply.

Wolfsonian internships follow the school semester calendar:

SPRING: January–April (application deadline: November 7)
SUMMER: May–July (application deadline: March 20)
FALL: August–December (application deadline: July 5)

Wolfsonian internships are unpaid, will be conducted on site, and require 10 hours/week within normal business hours, Monday through Friday. The Wolfsonian is happy to meet specific university requirements so that interns can receive course credit, however this must be arranged through the student's advisor or program head (options and opportunities vary by unit).

    Library | 1 position available
    Library interns receive training and practical experience in caring for, documenting, and preserving rare books and ephemera and become familiar with best practices in evaluating primary resource materials such as books, photographs, illustrations, and other visual materials.

    Registration interns assist collections staff with object inventory, cataloging, tracking, housing, handling, and packing. Learning policies and procedures related to the care, preservation, and documentation of the museum's diverse object collection, they gain an overall understanding of the day-to-day responsibilities of a museum registrar.
