The Walters Art Museum in Baltimore, Maryland is pleased to offer opportunities for qualified undergraduate and graduate students, and those in between degree programs, to intern in various museum divisions throughout the year. Based on a system of supervised learning, the internships enable students to understand how a museum operates and how to relate this experience to academic and professional goals.

Presently, the museum is in need of a public relations intern to serve for a period that corresponds to his or her institution’s summer 2010 semester system and is required to serve for a minimum of ten weeks. Interns work for a minimum of fifteen hours per week, which are organized around the student's class and/or work schedules. No stipend is offered for these internships. Students are responsible for arranging academic credit with their sponsoring institutions. The Walters seeks applications from undergraduate juniors and seniors, graduate students or recent graduates majoring in communications, public relations, marketing, arts management or admistration, museum studies and English.

Tasks could include: Monitoring press coverage from traditional and online media outlets, researching possible media outlets for special exhibitions, assisting in the drafting of short media advisories or fact sheets, website work, database work and compiling press kits.
