Online applications can be submitted at any time, with reviews happening several times a year. Review times are:

Fall Internships - Spring Break to last day of Fall registration

Summer internships are offered only in special circumstances. Please contact Dr. Maria Harvey if you have a summer project proposal.

Student interns earn course credit while deeply engaging with works of art to see that they are safely stored, documented, and digitized in accordance with best practices. They will develop practical museum skills, learn how to research a variety of subjects, and develop skills expected of young professionals. We welcome applicants from all fields of study and all levels. The successful applicant may earn 1, 2, or 3 credit hours of ARTH 495. Interns may also arrange to be given credit in another major or area at the discretion of the department.

Watch the interns from Spring 2021 discuss their memorable moments of the internship program. 

Honors Capstone Projects and the Madison Art Collection:
Honors students may propose an Honors Capstone Project using the Madison Art Collection or the Lisanby Museum.  Because these projects require three (3) semesters to complete, interested Honors students are encouraged to discuss this possibility during their sophomore year.
