Applications for Fall 2022 internships are currently open until May 5, 2022.

In order to complete the digitization process of its holdings, interns will work behind the scenes with the Madison Art Collection (MAC) to make our objects more accessible. Students will gain art history internship 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.

Questions? Contact Ginny Soenksen at soenksvm@jmu.edu 

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.
