Requirements of Internships: 
Interns are expected to treat their internships as a professional experience. Interns should observe the same work rules as other staff members, carry out work assignments productively and efficiently, and accept supervision.

In addition to the activities defined by each specific internship position, students seeking credit through the MSU Museum Studies Program are expected to complete a journal of internship activities, a portfolio, an article review and a short self-evaluation/summary report. Supervisors will also complete an evaluation.

How to Apply
