Internships

Give your education a professional advantage and participate in the exciting world of cultural and natural history, research, and education at the Culture and Heritage Museums!

With a variety of positions at each of our sites, The Culture & Heritage Museums (CHM) Internship Program offers students the unique and invaluable opportunity to apply skills and knowledge in a hands-on setting. In Education, Research, Archives, Living History, Event Planning and Marketing, students work alongside museum professionals, gain first-hand knowledge about museum career opportunities, engage in meaningful educational experiences, and establish contacts beneficial now and in the future. The CHM’s structured program and part-time schedule afford students the flexibility to experience a meaningful internship while fully engaged in college activities or part-time jobs.
