2022 Summer Internship
The Norton Museum of Art Summer Internship Program provides undergraduate students the opportunity to gain practical art museum experience, engage in intellectual discourse, and develop professional skills.
Support for the internship program was provided by The Mr. and Mrs. E. William Aylward Endowment and The Chastain Charitable Foundation Endowment.
College programs at the Norton provide learning beyond the classroom and into the galleries.
Instructors and Norton staff work together to create projects for courses. Students can give presentations in the Museum on art works on display, speak with staff about their careers, combine the Norton’s exhibitions and public programs with assignments, or other projects as appropriate.
Norton staff can tailor a 50-minute guided tour that addresses specific course content.
