AD&A Museum Internship
The AD&A Museum, UC Santa Barbara provides internships for academic credit that are designed to help UCSB students develop the transferable skills and professional experience relevant to a career in the arts and museum fields. Positions are usually offered in the following departments: curatorial, collections management, programs (education outreach) and public relations. In addition to working with a museum supervisor on a weekly basis, students enroll in the ARTH 141E/141F seminar. Here guest lectures by art and museum professionals provide students with valuable insight into their professions, as well as networking opportunities. Finally, interns have the opportunity to give tours, develop programming, participate in field trips and assist during evening events at the museum.
Interns have to commit to a minimum of two consecutive quarters (not including Summer) and enroll for a minimum of 2 units (60 hours) to a maximum of 4 units (120 hours) per quarter.

Impactmania: Human Mind and Migration
Considering the present historical moment and its sociopolitical and environmental cocktail of issues related to migration—from the consequences of climate change to public policymaking—it is more urgent than ever to provide platforms for meaningful broad-base engagement to take place. We want to help translate and bring into sharper view the rich insights and knowledge being produced in more remote corners of the intellectual/artistic landscape, so that the 7 billion homo sapiens presently living (and
migrating) on earth can imagine the most optimal future for themselves and the planet.
You will be researching a contemporary migration stream (people movement) of choice and interview people on and off campus. Your findings will be published on your own landing page (www.hmm.ucsb.edu
) as part of this program.
Human Mind and Migration is an interdisciplinary AD&A Museum and impactmania internship in collaboration with the Neuroscience Research Institute, Department of Religious Studies, and global partners to deliver a suite of interviews, interactive presentations, and performances.
SB Museum of Art, Gallery Guides Internship
SBMA Student Gallery Guides serve as key representatives of the Museum, connecting 6-12th grade students to the exhibitions, collections, and mission of the Museum. They help students of diverse abilities and backgrounds make authentic and personally relevant connections to art, one another, and the world through close looking, dialogue, inquiry, empathy and reflection. Student Gallery guides are given in-depth access to the SBMA’s special exhibitions and permanent collections and participate in a series of mandatory training workshops that explore museum education pedagogy, strategies for teaching with original works of art, and engaging different audiences. Guides lead an average of 3 to 6 gallery conversations per month, and engage in special projects including assisting on Sunday or Thursday evening family and community programs on an as-need basis. By serving as Educators, students gain in-depth access to SBMA exhibitions, programs, and resources; acquire experience in the museum field; and improve their research, teaching, and communication skills.
