Make the most of your summer by gaining invaluable experience working in an organization that is committed to preserving Scotland's historical monuments and artifacts, or to telling the story of Scotland's history, people and culture. You’ll spend your first four weeks studying courses that will put your Museum Studies Internship into an academic context including a course from the Scottish History program. One of the courses, Heritage Management, is taught by the former Keeper of Archaeology at National Museums of Scotland. Next, you’ll spend four weeks in your internship placement with an organization in a heritage-related sector that fits your own academic and professional objectives. Internship placement options include heritage sites such as museums, historical architectural sites in major cities and throughout Scotland up into the Highlands.
