HMUS 580 Internship I
All students are required to complete an internship of between eight and twelve 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 and recommending alumni contacts. 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 generally funded 100% by the host institution, which should pay the student $12.00 - $15.00 per hour depending on the economy and cost of living in a given area. If a student elects an unpaid internship in an urban area, which has a significant public component, some funding may be available through CGP's Rural/Urban Partnership. Students pay tuition for the internship at the rate of one (1) semester hour.
Prerequisite: Open only to full-time CGP students.
