Are you versed in the Italian language and interested in pursuing a career in art history or museum studies? Expand your credentials by interning at a prestigious Italian museum.

This exclusive opportunity is available only to students participating in the 18-week Florence-first option of the London & Florence program or the 10-week Florence: Arts in Context program.

The availability of internships will vary every semester and are not guaranteed. The internships do not earn program credit, and interns work at their museum sites while completing all of the required coursework for the program. Check with your home campus to see if your college can award you internship credit.

Florence program staff interview internship applicants upon arrival in Florence, and museum directors make the final hiring decision.
