Internships at the Gregg Museum of Art & Design
As a part of the Gregg Museum’s educational mission, the museum hosts interns to work with staff to learn more about museum work and to assist in fulfilling the institution’s greater mission.
The number of interns accepted each semester is determined by the museum’s current needs. Internships are paid and students may also choose to pursue class credit through their specific degree program. Further information will be discussed with candidates. Students are responsible for arranging with their own institutions and departments if they wish to receive class credit. Typically, interns work 8-10 hours per week for a total of 120 hours, depending on the requirements for credit. These hours should take place between the hours of 9:00 am – 5:00 pm Monday through Friday, though some tasks may take place outside of these times. The majority of these hours will be completed on-site and other hours may be conducted virtually under the supervision of museum staff. The student should have availability of a minimum of 4 consecutive hours on each day worked. Priority for internship placement is given to NC State students and then to students from other colleges and universities.
