Former Intern at American Museum of Natural History
about 3 years ago
The college interns training programs at the AMNH mainly focus on museum education. There are two programs for college students:
1) Museum Education and Employment Program (MEEP)
2) Public Programs / Margaret Mead Film Festival Internship
Internship programs are approximately 10 weeks. Students will learn different contents pertaining to the museum’s exhibits. MEEP interns will present the tours that they developed in June to visiting camp groups. Interns will staff educational touch carts with specimens and artifacts related to the halls.
The Public Programs division of the museum organizes lectures, workshops, festivals and film screenings related to the museum’s temporary and permanent exhibits. Interns will have the opportunity to work on projects related to both the Margaret Mead Film Festival and other public programs. Interns will have the opportunity to learn about public programs and film festival production, museum operations, and outreach strategies.
