Arts Management, Museums, Galleries, Libraries

The arts and cultural sector needs innovative arts administrators who can pair their creativity and passion with analytical, business, and technological skills to support diverse and sustainable arts organizations. From local galleries, chamber groups and community theaters to renowned symphony orchestras, established museums and Broadway, opportunities exist in the non-profit, public, and private sectors.

Finding Internships

Arts administration internships can be found in most any type of arts organization, and are common in theater companies and museums. Well-established internship programs, such as those at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Smithsonian InstitutionSotheby’s, and Christie’s offer a wider range of opportunities and often provide a stipend, and are very competitive. These are usually offered only during the summer. Smaller museums, galleries and auction houses may have more flexible requirements, and may offer internship opportunities throughout the academic year.
