  • Internships allow students to learn about the practice of art history through first-hand experience in an art museum, commercial gallery, art publication, or educational institution. In addition to the University of Toronto Art Museum (linked in the sidebar) Toronto offers many opportunities to develop a suitable short-term position. Students interested in an internship will be expected to make the professional connections and define the nature of the project well before the semester in which they wish to begin the internship. The Director of Undergraduate Studies and department faculty are excellent resources for contacts within the art community in Toronto.

    In order for the internship to receive credit, students will need to have the semester project approved before the start of the semester. They should submit a short (one to two paragraph) statement of the project, signed by both the student and the supervisor of the internship to the Director of Undergraduate Studies. This statement must include a description of the project including relevant activities and a clear educational goal for the internship. Appropriate internships might include contribution to the planning or research for an exhibition, developing curatorial files on collections, assisting with a publication, developing educational materials, or other substantive activities that offer the opportunity for learning more about the practice of art history, cultural work that engages with objects, and publications. Other areas are possible but the project should be discussed with the Director of Undergraduate Studies well beforehand.

    Most internships will be for one semester only; the maximum amount of credit possible for an internship is one full credit. Students should request to register for either FAH481H or FAH481Y. Students may not register for both.

    With the exception of U of T Art Museum internships, at the end of the internship, for credit to be given, students will write a report [2-3 pages] on the experience, to be submitted to the Director of Undergraduate Studies by the end of classes of the semester in which the internship was taken.
