An Internship for credit is one of the most rewarding experiences available to majors in the History of Art and Design. Undergraduates take advantage of the rich variety of cultural institutions in New York City to explore their interests outside the classroom and discover career possibilities and test their own expectations.
A recent student, who is interested in working in art administration, interned at Printed Matter, a non-profit that specializes in the publication of work by artists, and found it the ideal place to learn about the many responsibilities of running a non-profit organization.
Another undergraduate who wanted to further her understanding of Eastern art interned at the Rubin Museum in the education department, where the mission to broaden the knowledge of Himalayan cultures with the public was extended to the interns as well. She was able to study and experience some of the unique rituals of Himalayan peoples.
