UMOCA Internship Program

UMOCA’s Internships are a great way to gain professional experience working for a non-profit art museum. All of our internships are department centered, offering a unique look on how each facet contributes to the operations of a contemporary art museum. Interns have the opportunity to work one-on-one with department heads to carry out specific projects and general daily needs. Supplementary learning experiences are also achieved through assisting with public programs including exhibition openings, film screenings, art talks, and community outreach.

Internships are unpaid and based on semester schedules (depending on the accrediting institution’s requirements)

  • Spring Semester: Early/Mid January – Mid/Late April
  • Summer Semester: Early/Mid May – Mid/Late August
  • Fall Semester: Early/Mid September – Mid/Late December
