As a part of the Gregg Museum’s educational mission, we host interns to work with museum staff to learn more about museum work and to assist in fulfilling the institution’s greater mission.
Internships are unpaid. Students are responsible for arranging with their own institutions and departments to receive class credit. Typically, interns work 8-10 hours per week depending on the requirements for credit. These hours should take place during the museum’s regular office hours of 9:00 am – 5:00 pm Monday through Friday, though some tasks may take place outside of these times. Priority for internship placement is given to NC State students and then to students from other colleges and universities. The number of interns accepted each semester is determined by the museum’s current needs.
Interested applicants should send the following materials to Jordan Brothers Cao, Assistant Registrar:
- a cover letter indicating why you are interested in interning at the Gregg, what skills and/or experience you can bring to the program, and what you hope to gain from the internship
- a current resume including education, work experience, and preferred contact information
Applications must be received by 9:00 am on MONDAY, APRIL 27 2020, for Fall Semester 2020.
