Internships in the City

Students majoring in Art and Art History gain invaluable experience by working as interns in the museums, galleries, auction houses, graphic design and photography studios, advertising and publishing companies and other art-related businesses in metropolitan New York, and beyond.

They have learned how professionals in the art world developed their areas of expertise and how they run a variety of for-profit and non-profit organizations. They have been able to test their hand in professions in which they are considering careers. They have also served as Studio Assistants to artists and learned how artists need to balance the work of running a studio with their work as curators, writers, and educators.
