This is an eight-week, 20-hours-a-week unpaid internship, coinciding with the University’s eight-week summer session. Students can earn three credit hours. All students representing Truman in this internship program will enroll for academic credit through a department on campus willing to offer internship credit and internship supervision. The History faculty will offer such credit. Students interested in working with another department should talk to that department before pursuing this opportunity.
After being selected, the intern can work in a variety of areas at the Museum, including but not limited to:
- public relations
- educational programming
- museum development
- visitors services
The assignment will be based on each intern’s abilities and interests as well as the Museum’s needs.
Applicants for this internship should possess strong written and verbal communication skills, excellent organizational skills, and basic computer skills, as well as an ability to work independently on multiple tasks. The successful applicants will be dependable, motivated, and resourceful.
MEET ZACHThis internship is a great opportunity for career exploration and overall growth. I was able to help develop educational materials, set up public programs, and develop and give my own tours of the museum to school groups. Giving tours is rewarding, and there are many opportunities for research.
