The Parrish Art Museum has a variety of internship opportunities for both current graduate and undergraduate students seeking practical experience in various aspects of museum studies. These are unpaid positions and some may be available only seasonally. Internship positions are awarded at the discretion of the Museum based on the qualification of the applicant and availability of appropriate staff supervision. Internships build your resume and demonstrate to employers your ability to commit and gain real-world knowledge of your field. Candidates must currently be enrolled full-time in college, or have graduated just prior to the beginning of the internship.
