What better way to learn about the museum field than to experience it up close and behind-the-scenes? The Blanton Museum of Art awards a variety of internships at the undergraduate and graduate level. Blanton interns gain experience and knowledge within the museum environment and work on meaningful projects under the guidance of museum professionals. The Blanton welcomes and encourages students from all backgrounds to apply and is dedicated to developing a culturally diverse internship program.
Spring 2014 Internships will be posted here as they become available.
More about the internship categories:
A) Graduate Internship
The deadline to apply for 2013-2014 graduate internships has passed. Please check back in the spring for future opportunities.
For UT graduate students only, the Blanton awards part-time, paid internships for the long session (Fall/Spring only). Blanton Graduate Internships run with the academic calendar and are available for the summer sessions (unpaid) as well as the year-long session (paid). Graduate interns must meet employment requirements set by the Graduate School. Some graduate student interns, as UT employees, may be eligible to participate in insurance programs and may qualify for other benefits in accordance with existing university policies. Hours range from 10-20 hours a week. Compensation varies by appointment. Students from all academic and cultural backgrounds are encouraged to apply.
B) Volunteer Internship
The Blanton offers part-time, unpaid internships in a range of museum departments for undergraduate and graduate students during the academic year and the summer. Academic-year interns must be enrolled at UT, but students from other universities and colleges are invited to apply in the summer. Hours range from 10-20 hours a week. Earning course credit for a Blanton volunteer internship may be possible, but students must make those arrangements directly with their department and obtain all necessary approvals.
