HMUS 580 Internship I
Regular-track students are required to complete an internship of at least eight weeks in a museum or related organization during the summer between their first and second years in residence. Interns undertake and complete a special project approved by the host museum and the Program, and make periodic reports on their experience. Students are responsible for finding their own internships, although the Program assists by informing them about opportunities. The Program reserves the right to reject any student-arranged internship. The overall internship program is coordinated by the Program, but individual interns are supervised by museum professionals at the host institution. Internships are funded 100% by the host institution, which should pay the student $1,200–$l,600 per month for full-time work or approximately $8.00–$10.00 per hour depending on the economy and cost of living in a given area. Students pay tuition for the internship at the rate of one (1) semester hour.
Prerequisite: Open only to full-time CGP students.
