Museum Education Internship Program

We invite promising young professionals to join our Museum Education Internship Program. As an Intern Educator, you will gain in-depth fieldwork experience by designing, facilitating, and teaching programs that address the needs of adult, school, and youth and family audiences. Participate in hands-on workshops and reading discussions, and conduct qualitative research throughout the year to learn about museum education theory and practice. Ongoing professional development provided by our experienced education and curatorial staff ensures that Intern Educators leave the program with extensive experience teaching and programming for a variety of audiences, and with a completed professional teaching portfolio.

Program alumni have pursued careers at such cultural institutions as the Denver Art Museum; the Mathaf: Arab Museum of Modern Art, Qatar; The Metropolitan Museum of Art; the National Museum of the American Indian; the New Museum; and the Queens Museum of Art, as well as the New York City Department of Education and the School District of Philadelphia.

These full-time, ten-month, salaried positions with benefits are open to college graduates and run from September through June.

Applications for the 2016–17 cycle are now closed. Check back March 2017 to apply for the next cycle.
