Working experience in functions, departments, programs of the sponsoring museum; relation to museum's overall mission and museum field in general.
The internship affords advanced museum students an opportunity to participate in the functions, departments, and programs of the sponsoring (external) museum and relate this experience to both the overall mission of the museum and the museum field in general. The experience can provide a general overview of a given museum operation, or when the student's interests may be better served by specialized museological training, areas of concentration can be pursued. A formal internship agreement is established between the sponsoring museum, the student, the UI Career Center, and the UI Museum Studies faculty which stipulates the duties and objectives of the internship. Accountability as well as evaluation of the internship are maintained through separate reports prepared by both the intern and the sponsoring museum's staff supervisor pursuant to the originally stated objectives. These reports are in turn evaluated by the UI Museum Studies faculty. In special cases when individual circumstances would prevent travel to an external museum, an internship can be arranged at a University of Iowa museum.
