Mentor-based Learning Opportunities

The Savannah African Art Museum offers a range of hands on learning opportunities to students at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Internship programs are available to students who are interested in a career in the arts and fields related to museum. In addition to developing skills through projects within the museum departments, interns participate in content training and interact directly with the museum’s guests by leading tours through the curated galleries. Offered internships are year-round in 10 week intervals and are flexible with academic schedules.


Each intern is placed in one of the museum’s departments under the supervision of a full-time staff member. 


Full and part-time internships at the Savannah African Art Museum are open to college undergraduates and graduate-level students of all majors, as well as recent graduates. For certain internships, you may be able to obtain funding or academic credit through your educational institution. Check with your career services center for more information.

High school students are eligible for internship opportunities through several formal programs. We also welcome high school students as summer volunteers.
