Purpose of Internship:

The purpose of an internship is to give students structured experience with the theoretical concepts and museum/gallery functions. Art Education students enrolled in ARE 369 are expected to work in educational programs that have direct relevance to their course work.


An internship requires the completion of a substantive, clearly defined project that will allow students to apply critical, organizational and communication skills and to demonstrate initiative, creative thinking and responsible teamwork in a professional setting. Completion of the internship project will be documented in a form to be agreed on by the student and the UNCG faculty advisor. Students enrolled in the course are also responsible for securing a letter of evaluation from the internship supervisor; the letter should be signed and submitted on letterhead to the UNCG faculty advisor, who will assign a grade.

Liability Insurance:

If the company, center or agency you will be working for does not carry liability insurance that covers non-paid employees, the School of Art will pay for the liability insurance.

The following forms need to be printed, filled out, signed and brought to the School of Art Office before you begin your internship.

  • Internship Check List
  • Project Form The project form needs to be filled out and signed by the intern, the intern supervisor and faculty member. Bring completed forms to the School of Art Office before beginning your internship.
  • Form Letter for Intern Supervisor Have your supervisor fill this out, sign it and student intern must bring it to the Art department office.
  • Instructional Agreement – if you are doing your internship off campus, the university must have an instructional agreement with the company on file in the School of Art office. Check the list below, if we already have an Instructional Agreement on file, we do not need another one. If the company is not in the list below, print out this instructional agreement and have the company representative sign under “Agency”. We will obtain the Dean’s signature. This agreement must be on file with the Art Office before you begin your internship.

We currently have instructional agreements with the following companies:

If there is a company that you would like to do an internship with that is not listed, print out an Instructional Agreement and have a company representative sign the agreement. Return it to the School of Art office (Gatewood 138) before you begin your internship.
