The Academic Year Internship Program is a new initiative that allows Penn sophomores and juniors the opportunity to work closely with Museum staff for two semesters, providing them with the skills, knowledge, and connections needed to support independent research in the senior year.
|Who||University of Pennsylvania sophomores and juniors who are interested in archaeology, ancient history, or museums.|
|What||A year-long, two-part internship program that exposes you to the different kinds of work being done at the Penn Museum, and gives you the tools to conduct your own research project on an object in the collection.|
|When||Fall seminars on Monday afternoons from 3:30-5:00.|
|Where||The Penn Museum’s world-renowned galleries, collections, archives, and laboratories.|
|Why||The Penn Museum wants to increase the breadth and depth of student research and training within the Museum, expose students to museum practice, and provide them with the tools to conduct independent, senior-level research in the collections. If you are interested in what objects tell us about the lives of people across the globe and throughout time, and you are considering a senior thesis or other capstone project, this is the internship for you!|
|How||Interested applicants should submit the following to Anne Tiballi, Curricular Facilitator, by Monday, May 16th:
