The internship program at the Barrick Museum can be a one or two-term course of study at the museum where students are supervised on a one-on â one basis by a museum professional. Students are introduced to professional level museum work by participating in a range of everyday activities and by assuming responsibility for at least one specific project. Internships will be modified according to student interest and talents. Academic credit can be arranged in association with your department; typically, students enroll in an Independent Study and design a project in conjunction with their professor.
