Museum Internship Program
The Museum Internship Program at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery is designed to provide exposure to and experience in a museum environment to undergraduate students, graduate students, and recent graduates (within one year of graduation). Internships are available throughout the school year in Fall and Spring Sessions, as well as during the summer. Under the supervision of a department head and key staff members, interns will participate in daily administrative and research activities conducive to their academic and professional growth. Students who wish to obtain academic credit for their internship may do so and must make their own arrangements with their college or university.
Academic Year and Summer Internships
Academic Year Internships
Interns are accepted twice during the year, in a Fall Session taking place from September through early-December, and a Spring Session, which runs from February through May. Intern hours are flexible to accommodate class schedules; however, participants are required to intern a minimum of eight hours a week and must complete 90 hours during the internship session. The deadline for Fall Session internship applications is July 15, and the deadline for Spring Session internship applications is October 31.
The Museum Internship Program Summer Session runs from June through August. Participants are required to intern a minimum of ten hours a week and must complete 120 hours during the course of the summer internship. The deadline for Summer Session applications is March 15.
