Internship 2 provides students in the Liberal Arts program who are completing or have already completed MUSC 8004: Internship 1 an additional practical and customised opportunity to experience how cultural, collecting and other related agencies work. Students undertake a workplace-based placement with an agreed cultural and collecting institution, heritage agency, independent professional academic or consultant, or equivalent. Students will be supported by the ANU internship co-ordinator, but will be under the day-to-day supervision of a workplace-based supervisor nominated by the host institution or professional. Students will generally be given opportunities to experience the breadth and variety of the agency's professional role in curatorial, conservation, registration, public program, front of house and exhibitions, or other roles as appropriate to the placement.
