MHST6905 - Internship Project

Semester 1, 2014  |  Credit Points: 6

Coordinator: Annie Clarke


The internship unit allows students to gain hands on experience by undertaking a supervised project based in a recognised, gallery, museum or heritage or arts organisation. Projects are developed in close consultation with the institutions needs and the student's desired experience. The internship unit offers hands on experience of museums, heritage or cultural organisations and allows for a broadening of skills and expertise as well as an opportunity to gain an understanding of the relationship between theory and institutional practice. The capstone internship unit is designed to offer an experience that encourages students to synthesize their experience of theory and practice and includes a major essay allowing you to consider a specific topic of your choice.
