MUSEUMS STUDIES INTERNSHIP
Museum studies minors are required to complete a 3-credit academic internship under the course number HAA 1905. This is both an academic course and an internship placement. Students receive substantive mentoring from a site supervisor at a local museum, collection or historic site, and engage in projects with learning outcomes, whether in curatorial, educational, communications or development departments. Students also participate in monthly cohort meetings with the other interns enrolled in the course, under the guidance of an HAA faculty member, and are required to produce a final product. Note: academic internships through HAA 1905 are also available to HAA majors as an optional elective. The student must apply for the internship through the HAA department.
