• The checklist below is for supervisor/student use and does not need to be submitted to the Internship Coordinator. UW Museology views a comprehensive host-site orientation as a critical component to the success and productivity of any internship and we encourage supervisors to discuss the following items with their interns.  
  • Internships may occur ON or OFF campus. Students should meet with supervisors to arrange an appropriate work schedule compatible with each parties needs (students are required to complete at least a total of 180 hours of internship work over their two years which they can split between as many institutions and internship opportunities as they like).
  • Supervisors are encouraged to contact the Museology Program with any questions or concerns regarding internships. Inquiries can be directed to the internship coordinator, Nick Visscher at vissche2@uw.edu or 206-221-0753.
