Undergrad Internship Requirements

UD_MSST_Undergrads2016

 

MSST 464: Internship/Service Project (3 credits – may be taken twice) is required to complete the undergraduate minor in museum studies. The internship consists of 105 hours on site (7.5 hours per week for 14 weeks) of supervised work experience intended to complement the program’s courses and provide real-world experience in a museum, historic site, public garden, archive, or other related organization.  Students may also choose to participate in the Museum Studies Collections SWAT Team project each January as part of their internship hours, or other service projects that are approved by the Museum Studies Director.   MSST 464 can be taken up to two times for credit towards the minor.

The set of links below contains the requirements for setting up and completing internships for both students and sponsor organizations, offers advice on finding internships and explains the internship policies associated with various academic programs. Both students and organizations interested in having interns should contact  Tracy Jentzsch, Program Coordinator,  early in the academic year to indicate their interest and to begin planning.
