Museology Master of Arts Program

Information for internship supervisors

Museology graduate students complete nearly 10,000 hours of internship work during the academic year as well as during the summer. They bring with them past work experiences in addition to graduate level coursework in collections management, exhibit development, audience research and evaluation, education, program planning, fundraising and administration.

Students begin working toward their internship requirements during the winter quarter of the first year, and generally look for internship opportunities a few weeks before the start of a new quarter. For start and end dates, check the University of Washington’s academic calendar.
