Each year, the Hood Museum of Art offers internships to Dartmouth students entering their senior year. Students from all majors and backgrounds are encouraged to apply for this tremendous professional and educational experience. Internships are available in the following areas:
• Public Relations
These internships are designed to give an overview of the work of the museum, and interns meet as a group with staff members over the course of the year to learn more about the museum profession as a whole. In addition, most interns organize a unique A Space for Dialogue installation that involves selecting and researching objects from the museum’s collection, writing a brochure and labels, and giving a public gallery talk.
Hood senior internships require a commitment of 10 hours per week during the fall, winter, and spring terms at a rate of $9.00 per hour. The deadline for applications (cover letter and resume) is May 1, 2013, and hired interns will begin work at the start of fall term.
Applications should be sent to: Hood Internships, Hinman Box 6034, Hood Museum of Art, Dartmouth College, Hanover, NH 03755. Students who plan to do a senior thesis are strongly discouraged from applying for these internships, due to the significant time commitment that each entails. Art history majors who intend to complete a thesis during their senior year may apply as juniors. For questions about the internship program, feel free to call the museum at (603) 646-2808.
