MOPA’s internship program offers students the opportunity to grow professionally and academically in a museum environment. A variety of positions are offered throughout the year, providing learning experiences within and between the Visual Learning, Development, Administration and Operations departments.

Internships are unpaid, but are available for academic credit.

MOPA accepts internship applications on a rolling basis throughout the year. To apply, please view the internship descriptions to see which positions are currently available.
