The department of Art and Art History at the University of Rochester will offer spring internships to New York City to all qualified junior and senior students interested in learning about the production, distribution, and exhibition of artwork.

Students will receive a total of 16 credits for the semester ? eight will be for the internship, and four each for the colloquium and elective course.

“Integral to the Department of Art and Art History’s belief in the marriage of theory and practice, the program offers an exciting opportunity for career development to prospective artists, art historians, museum and gallery professionals, and curators, those who envision a career in art journalism, arts administration and management, advertising, or those who simply wish to gain an insider’s perspective on the art world,” a release said.

Interested applicants should contact the Department of Art and Art History for an application form.
