Internships are offered by the Art Institute's many departments throughout the year and enable students to gain first-hand experience in their areas of interest or study.
Interns, working under the guidance of curators or department heads, assist in routine departmental work that ranges from special projects and research to clerical support. Interns are undergraduate or graduate students or recent college graduates. A major in art history or fine art is not essential. Internships vary from department to department; a majority of internships are offered unpaid or for academic credit. Students are responsible for making appropriate arrangements with their schools to receive credit for internships. Hours vary and are flexible; however, a minimum of 14 hours per week is generally expected. View a list of currently available internships.
