Two internships are
required to be taken for credit for the major. We recommend your first internship
experience is ARTC 464, an in-house internship with one of our faculty members
on campus or at Winterthur Museum. The second internship can be in-house with another faculty
member or at another institution. If an internship for credit is
undertaken during summer or winter breaks at a museum or conservation center
outside of UD, then you must sign up for ARTC 464-015 and select a faculty
sponsor in order to receive credit. Be sure to speak to your advisor in advance
if you plan to do this.
More than two
internships are needed in preparation for graduate school. We encourage
students to undertake internships on their own (not for credit) in addition to
the two that are required. Be sure to document your internships with
photos and written documentation to use it in your portfolios!
Admission into art
conservation graduate school requires a minimum of 400 hours of conservation internship
experience. In recent years, the students in incoming WUDPAC classes have
averaged 2,000 internship hours!
