Internships for Academic Credit

ARTHIST 310 and ARTHIST 311 are internship practicums held at the Nasher Museum, designed to provide Duke students professional museum experience and the opportunity to explore the museum and its operations from a variety of viewpoints.

For ARTHIST 310, Duke students must be available for a total commitment of 6 hours per week: a weekly one-hour seminar (class meets on Wednesdays, 3:05 – 4:20 PM) and 5 hours in their assigned department (individual intern schedule to be arranged between the student and supervising staff). Students are evaluated on their completion of tasks as assigned by their internship department, participation in the weekly seminar, contribution to the group project and fulfillment of individual final research project. Grades are assigned by the supervising staff in consultation with the seminar instructor.

For ARTHIST 311, Duke students must be available for a total commitment of 8 hours per week. In contrast to ARTHIST 310, there is no weekly class meeting; students work all eight hours within their assigned department (individual intern schedule to be arranged between the student and supervising staff). Students are evaluated solely on their completion of tasks as assigned by their internship department. Therefore, grades are assigned solely by the supervising staff.
