Program Overview

Program Description:
Interns participate in the ongoing work of a particular department, complete a project or a distinct portion of a larger project. Interns work alongside staff members in a tutorial arrangement and gain invaluable skills and training in museum and gallery practice. These internships are great for undergraduates, graduates, and masters candidates interested in pursuing a career in a relevant field. Each placement depends on when you decide to go, your particular area of interest, your qualifications, and what particular organization has openings for interns. Art galleries require a minimum time commitment of 4 weeks. Museums require a minimum time commitment of 8 weeks, though 12 weeks is preferred. We ask that all participants arrive in Dublin on a Sunday. Housing is usually not available before Sunday. Group orientation will take place Monday morning, and then your first day at your placement will be Tuesday.
