About

MAAS Tertiary Internships

Since 1988, the Museum of Applied Arts and Science has provided instruction and inspiration to hundreds of graduate and undergraduate students as well as others seeking self-enrichment. Former Interns have achieved success in professional positions in the cultural, arts and museum sectors. The relationship between the institution and the student is mutually beneficial; with guidance from museum professionals, Interns gain practical experience by working on projects and programs while the Museum benefits from their contribution.

We offer a limited number of unpaid internships at MAAS for current students and recent graduates during the academic year. These internships provide for the development of professional skills in a variety of fields and learning about museum practice. Please note applicants must be current students.

In addition to focused learning through projects in various areas, students join a community of interns, volunteers and staff. All MAAS interns have opportunities to attend gallery programs, presentations by staff, and behind-the-scenes visits.
