The Internship Program at the Museum of Art - DeLand provides a wide variety of educational and professional training opportunities for college students. Museum internships are designed primarily for students majoring in or studying art history, art education, communications and public relations, marketing, and information technology. Museum internships are non-paid, but academic credit may be received depending on the intern’s college program. Students are encouraged to ask their school's academic advisers about the process for receiving academic credit. Internships are designed to last at least 6 weeks (60 hours) and typically no more than 12 weeks (120 hours), or the equivalent of a school term or semester. Interns are expected to work 8 to 10 hours per week, or as otherwise indicated. Schedules are arranged to meet both the needs of the student and the Museum. Applications should be made 30 days prior to the proposed starting date or as soon as possible. Selected applicants will be contacted for an interview and considered for placement based on the needs of the Museum.
