Internships + Opportunities

Experience the
Real World
Every Semester.

The multi-billion-dollar art industry has more to offer than you can imagine. Whether you’re drawn to work for not-for-profits like museums or fascinated by galleries and the global art market, your career begins with an internship. Required for juniors and seniors and highly recommended for first-year students and sophomores, as an intern you’ll build your professional network, access and skills.

Why Internships? Why Now?

Maybe it was reading the papers of Alma Thomas at the Archives of American Art, or perhaps it was an original Romare Bearden at the High Museum of Art. Whatever the experience that sparked your love of art, an internship is the gateway to a lifelong career of education and engagement.

I was a sophomore in college when I interned here at the museum [The Studio Museum in Harlem]. Dr. [ Mary Schmidt] Campbell, as an art historian, made it very clear to me that my education in American art had to be supplemented by knowledge of African-American artists, because at the time it wasn’t in the textbooks the way it is now.” – Thelma Golden, Director and Chief Curator of The Studio Museum in Harlem 

Start here. Go Anywhere.

Interns go behind-the-scenes and get hands-on experience while giving tours, cataloging collections, researching exhibitions and more. Paid summer internships are available to all art history majors and curatorial studies minors. Academic year internships are highly encouraged, either here in Atlanta, online or studying around the world.

They’ve done it. So will you.
