The National Museum of American Jewish History is a leading cultural institution with a vibrant internship program for college and graduate students who want to learn about public history, the museum profession, non-profit organizations, and the American Jewish experience. Interns work in specific departments and participate in periodic group experiences during the summer, fall, and spring terms.
Internships are primarily unpaid educational opportunities that can be taken for course credit, where applicable.
The program is open to college and graduate students who wish to participate as volunteers or to meet the requirements of their college/university for academic credit. Students must be able to work a regular schedule with a minimum of 8 hours per week on site for at least one semester.
Interns will be placed according to their interests, experience, and the needs of the Museum. We will also be pleased to discuss a placement to support a specific project of interest to students. Potential placements include: Academic Liaison, Community Relations, Development, Education, Events & Facility Rentals, Exhibitions and Collections, Public Programs, Marketing and Communications, and Retail.
