Information on WCU Fine Art Museum Internships 

Fine Art Museum Internship Program

The WCU Fine Art Museum Internship Program provides "real world" work and learning experiences for college students and recent graduates in related fields of study such as arts administration, museum installation, curating, art education, art history, marketing, hospitality, communications, museum studies, and graphic design.

 

Working under the supervision of the museum staff, interns assist with the daily tasks that culminate in the WCU Fine Art Museum’s exhibitions and special events. Interns work with their supervisors to design their own focus, which helps to build acquired skills such as problem solving, teamwork, volunteer coordination, and museum organization. The museum offers the chance for students to build their resumes and receive letters of recommendation at the completion of a successful internship. Internships are unpaid but may be completed for academic credit. Internships are offered in the fall, spring and summer to coincide with the academic year and are limited in availability.
