The Internship with available arts cultural institutions is a prestigious and demanding program, in which the Internship Convenor places graduate students with a sound record of academic achievement in Art History or a related field. The Internship is designed to provide the student with insights into the activities and the workings of an art museum or gallery. The specific nature of the contact work will depend on the requirements of the art museum specialist supervisor, who may include curators, registrars, research program managers and art educators and public programmers. The internship is seen as providing an opportunity for learning about the field in preparation towards an art museum career.

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:

  1. participate in the workings of an arts and cultural institution in co-operation with specialist staff;
  2. reflect critically and productively on the experiences of working in an arts and cultural institution in co-operation with specialist staff;
  3. engage professionally with stakeholders on relevant topics; and
  4. think, write, and argue about issues and questions related to museums and collections.

Indicative Assessment

  1. Research paper on a topic of relevance to museums and collections, 3000 words (50) [LO 1,2,3,4]
  2. Reflective journal on activities undertaken during the internship, written up weekly for submission towards completion of the internship, 3000 words (50) [LO 1,2,3,4]

The ANU uses Turnitin to enhance student citation and referencing techniques, and to assess assignment submissions as a component of the University's approach to managing Academic Integrity. While the use of Turnitin is not mandatory, the ANU highly recommends Turnitin is used by both teaching staff and students. For additional information regarding Turnitin please visit the ANU Online website.

Workload

130 hours of total student learning time made up of a combination of attendance at internship placement, workshops, and applied research and writing. Students will undertake 120 hours (20 days) of internship placement in an arts and cultural institution in Canberra. The structure and delivery of contact hours is dependent on internship placement.
