The College of Arts + Architecture has established paid student internships across the cultural community, at institutions such as the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art, the Charlotte Symphony, The Mint Museum, Theatre Charlotte, Charlotte Art League, Charlotte Ballet, and the Blumenthal Performing Arts Center. These internships are open to CoA+A Majors only and provide excellent professional training.

Curatorial Intern, Mint Museum
"In this internship, I will primarily be working with both the curator and the librarian of the Mint Museum to compile a set of usable images of the artists in the museum's collection, which will then be added to the museum's database. I am so excited to finally experience the "behind the scenes" in a museum and have the privilege of working under the museum's curator and librarian. I also love research, which will be most of what I do there - having the opportunity to do this in an actual museum setting is so exciting!"

Community Outreach Intern, Bechtler Museum of Modern Art
"I will be assisting Mykell Jamil Gates with the Bechtler's program by data tracking, filing, as well as other office duties. I will also go along to these classes to interact with the participants. I want to get a hands-on experience helping others through art and working in a gallery space. This may lead to a career working in a gallery setting or a career teaching others what I've learned and passing my knowledge on others as my professors did for me. I love how relaxed and comfortable I am with the environment. Previous jobs have often left me feeling intimidated and uncomfortable. This internship has been the exact opposite so far."
