Museum Studies Internship Program Courses, Arcadia University, Scotland

Publish Date: Jan 12, 2016

Deadline: Mar 31, 2016

Internship placements include: heritage sites such as museums, historic houses and architectural units primarily in and around Edinburgh.

Make the most of your summer by gaining invaluable experience working in an organization that is committed to preserving Scotland's historical monuments and artifacts, or to telling the story of Scotland's history, people and culture.

You’ll spend your first four weeks studying courses that will put your heritage internship into an academic context including a course from the Scottish History program. You’ll also take a course in Heritage Management, taught by the former Keeper of Archaeology at National Museums of Scotland. Next, you’ll spend four weeks in your internship placement with an organization in a heritage-related sector that fits your own academic and professional objectives. Placements are available in heritage sites such as museums, historical architectural sites in major cities and throughout Scotland up into the Highlands.

Course Description


The programme aims to introduce students to the professional museums and heritage sector in Scotland. It is designed to give students experience of applying and developing their knowledge and skills on real projects for host organisations involved in the visual arts or built heritage. The actual work may vary considerably from placement to placement and may range from intensive, work placement-based activity in the institution to more researchbased work, which may be carried out independently in local libraries and/or archives.

This is an 8 week program including 4 weeks of internship placement at a heritage management site. Your first four weeks are dedicated to the core Heritage Management course and a Scottish Studies course, to prepare you for your internship placement. Your final four weeks you will be completely immersed in your internship course which includes your full-time, hands-on internship placement and your independent research project guided by an academic supervisor.
