Internship Program

Established in 2010, the Collection’s internship program provides recent graduates of the university with an opportunity to learn about the daily operations of a musical instrument museum. Interns generally are hired for the period of one academic year. During their internships, they are expected to assist with all aspects of museum life, including archival preservation, instrument documentation, exhibit maintenance and preparation, concert management, and public relations.

For more information about the program, contact the museum’s director.
