The Valentine offers year-round undergraduate and graduate level internships, with projects designed to benefit both the intern and the mission of the Valentine. The program strives to provide equitable access to valuable, project-based and real-world experiences in the museum field.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the Valentine’s collections care renovation project, the museum will not be offering internships for the summer 2022 semester. Please check back for future opportunities or consider our volunteer opportunities.
