The American Civil War Museum offers internships in the departments of Collections and Interpretation.
Past internship projects have included researching for exhibit content, organizing original document collections, and learning and conducting educational programs or tours. Placements are made according to a student's interests and availability, in conjunction with departmental needs. Interns can be undergraduate or graduate students interested in museum studies, historical research, museum education, and southern or military history. Interns should be self-motivators, capable of working independently, and comfortable assisting with collaborative projects. Student interns can earn between two and three credit hours toward their degree. All internships are unpaid.
Interested applicants should contact Patrick Saylor for an application packet. The completed application and letter of intent is required for internship consideration. Application deadlines are flexible. Applications will be considered through the first week of classes for the current semester. Earlier applicants are given first choice of internship opportunities; later applicants are not guaranteed selection.
Thank you so much for your interest in becoming a part of the American Civil War Museum team.
