Internships at the Corcoran for Summer/Fall 2010

December 2, 2009

The Corcoran Gallery of Art offers internships for graduate and undergraduate students. Based on a program of supervised learning, Corcoran internships provide students with an opportunity to learn about museum operations and to pursue academic and professional goals.

Academic-Year Internships

The Corcoran offers academic year internships (September–May) to juniors, seniors, and graduate students. To correspond with class schedules, interns can arrange flexible work hours (approximately 15–25 hours per week). Interns during the academic year work on substantial research projects, which contribute to the Corcoran’s programming.

Summer Internships

The Corcoran sponsors a 10-week internship program from early June through mid-August. This program is open to juniors or seniors in college, graduate students, and students between academic degree programs. The summer internship program is explicitly geared toward those students who are interested in gaining firsthand museum experience or intend to pursue careers in arts administration.

Students desiring academic credit for their internship must make appropriate arrangements with their academic advisor and the associate dean of student affairs. The Corcoran can offer no stipend.

Fall 2010 application deadline–July 30, 2010
