The UMass Amherst Arts Extension Service, Career Services, the Departments of Art, Art History, Music and Dance, History, Theater, and the College of Humanities and Fine Arts are pleased to present the Arts Entrepreneurship Initiative's Spring Arts and Humanities Internship Fair. The Fair will feature local internship opportunities in the arts, arts management and cultural non-profit fields.
Internship providers in attendance will include non-profit arts and cultural organizations, museums, performing arts organizations, galleries, bands, choirs, social justice organizations, creative businesses and independent artists with spring and summer learning opportunities for UMass students.
Refreshments will be provided. A list of participating internship providers - and their internships - will be available starting Wednesday, January 25.
Students can land an internship in one afternoon. Most providers are looking for interns for the spring and summer may request to further interview intern candidates immediately following the fair. If students are interested in doing an internship for credit, they will be able to secure a position in time for spring add/drop (February 6).

Why intern? Career Services recommends arts students complete three internships prior to graduation in order to be competitive in the field. Internships provide students hands-on experience and help them build necessary professional skills through real world practice.
