Internship Opportunities

The Speed Art Museum offers an array of internships throughout the year to qualified graduate and undergraduate students. The Speed's intern program allows students from various educational backgrounds to work with and learn from museum professionals, promoting an awareness of careers in the field through experiences not available in most academic settings. Our goal is to ensure that the internship experience is one that challenges and grows each participant, while helping the Museum fulfill its mission.

All internship placements are made by the intern coordinator, based on project availability and the individual's qualifications.

The Speed also welcomes local high school students to learn more about careers in the art museum by hosting students for a week-long shadowing. Students can visit with and talk to museum professionals from various departments to learn more about educational backgrounds and career options within the art museum. For more information on this program please email

All volunteers and interns must submit to a background check as part of the application process.
