|Museum Studies graduate student, Jennifer Rogers, was recently featured in a Baylor Magazine article about summer internships.|
InternshipsAt the undergraduate level all Museum Studies majors are required to undertake a ten-week internship as part of their degree requirement, and graduate students are encouraged to do the same. These internships have been done at institutions across the United States. Students are encouraged to apply for competitive internships, but they can also be arranged independently with the assistance of Museum Studies faculty. It is a firm policy of the department that all internships must be a meaningful work experience which gives the student the opportunity to learn by working alongside a seasoned museum professional.
Museum Studies students have also found opportunities for meaningful work experiences at some of the other libraries and cultural institutions on campus, notably the Armstrong-Browning Library, the Martin Museum of Art and Univeristy Art Gallery, the Texas Collection, and the Institute for Oral History.
