The Museum Seminar (MuSe) Internship Program

The Museum Seminar (MuSe) Internship Program awards ten-week, nine-month, or twelve-month internships to students interested in a career in the arts and fields related to The Met’s many departments, at both The Met Fifth Avenue and The Met Cloisters.

Long term nine-month and twelve-month internships are also available. These long-term interns fully participate in the MuSe program during the summer.

The MuSe Internship Program begins on the first Monday in June. All interns must start on this date; there are no exceptions. Ten-week internships end the second week of August when the summer MuSe program concludes. Long-term interns remain and work with their supervisors for the remainder of their internship periods.

How to Apply

Apply using the online application. It will ask you to select which internships interest you: ten-week, nine-month, and/or twelve-month. You may apply for any and all of these internships with the same application. If you would like to be considered for a long-term internship as well as a ten-week summer internship, simply select both of those options on the application.

You’ll be asked to select Museum and project areas that interest you, as well as your academic interests and skills. You will write a short essay explaining your interest in this internship and the Museum areas you’ve selected. You will also need to upload an unofficial transcript and a rĂ©sumĂ© describing your experience. Students applying for an internship in the Design Department will be asked to upload a portfolio.

You will also have to ask two people who know you well to write letters of recommendation for you. One of these letters must be from someone who knows you in an academic context (either a professor or instructor).

We recommend that you edit your application carefully before submitting, and perhaps ask one of your instructors or professors to look over your essay and/or résumé as well. If you are unsure about how to write a résumé, we suggest you contact the career services center at your college or university for guidance.

Apply online.
