Courses and Supervised Independent Study
The Peabody Museum invites applications for summer internships at the Museum for undergraduate (or recent graduates) and graduate students of any college or university. Opportunities vary from year to year, but generally the internships are designed to offer experience in museum activities such as curatorial research, collections management, archives, museum education, public programming, publications and/or conservation. Summer internship programs are offered every other year. The next Summer Program will be offered for Summer 2022.
