We have several internship opportunities at the Worcester Art Museum. Internships require a 3 to 4 month time commitment. During this time, you will be responsible for assisting with a specific departmental project or projects that will allow you to learn across different areas of the Museum. A site supervisor will work with you to develop a project plan and provide mentorship and feedback on your work. All internships are unpaid. We are able to provide internships for credit if approved by your college or university. Our goal is to provide real-life museum experience in an educational environment.
Internship time offerings are semester-based:
- Fall semester, spring semester and summer semester
We currently do not have any summer internship postings. Please check back.
