For the past 50 years, the Department of Museum Education has hosted an annual symposium for graduate students in art history at Midwestern universities.
Students are chosen by their universities because of outstanding research or writing projects, and a local faculty member acts as discussant to the panels. One of the papers will be chosen as a public lecture topic.
The 2016 seminar takes place April 15–16 in the Nichols Board of Trustees Suite.
For more information, please call (312) 857-7129.
Participating universities have included Indiana University at Bloomington, Northern Illinois University, Northwestern University, Ohio State University, School of the Art Institute of Chicago, University of Chicago, University of Illinois at Chicago, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, University of Iowa, University of Michigan, University of Minnesota, University of Missouri, University of Wisconsin at Madison, and Washington University in St. Louis.

You are also welcome to visit the museum on your own and buy tickets once you arrive. If possible, let us know you're coming by calling (312) 857-7104.
All college students, faculty, and staff have open access to the Ryerson and Burnham Libraries during open hours.
Many departments offer internships for academic credit throughout the school year and summer. There are also year-round opportunities for volunteers.
