The Met offers paid opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students, as well as recent graduates, to explore museum careers and gain professional experience during the summer.
Full-time nine-month and twelve-month internships are awarded every year to recent graduates of degree-granting programs at the graduate and undergraduate level. Long-term interns begin on the first Monday in June and fully participate in the ten-week Museum Seminar (MuSe) Internship Program. At the conclusion of the summer session, they continue work with their supervisors for the remainder of their internship period and participate in weekly programming for the Fall- and Spring-Semester Internship Program. Please note that the start and end dates of these internships are fixed and not flexible.
The following internships are available for 2021-2022:
Lifchez/Stronach Nine-Month Curatorial Internship
The Emily K. Rafferty Twelve-Month Internship in Museum Administration
The Tiffany & Co. Foundation Twelve-Month Curatorial Internship in American Decorative Arts
