Become a Intern

What is an internship?

An internship at OUSM is a educational opportunity where an intern learns, under a mentor's guidance, about a museum field that interests them academically or professionally.

What internships are offered at OUSM?

OUSM has offered internships in every area of the museum, including curatorial and collections management, education and audience engagement, exhibition design and production, communications and marketing, special events and donor relations, museum administration, and visitor services. However, the specific internships offered each cycle (spring, summer, or fall) depend on mentor availability and upcoming possible internship projects. Most OUSM internships are unpaid, although many students receive academic credit.
