The Louisiana State Exhibit Museum offers volunteer internship opportunities for undergraduate and graduate university students. Interns assist LSEM’s Curator in collection management, exhibit research, education program development, and public relations. Internships give students meaningful and practical experience in museum work to aid their future careers.
Course credits for internships depend on the university program. The LSEM Curator will work in concert with faculty to ensure that internships meet university curriculum objectives. Students interested in pursuing careers in public history, museum studies, Louisiana history, archaeology, anthropology, education or visual arts are encouraged to apply.
LSEM reviews internship applications at any time of the year from all universities. Decisions to proceed with an internship depend on the museum’s current activities, staff resources, and consideration of how the museum will meet the student’s internship objectives.
