Undergraduate Internships

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!
